UnitedHealth: CT is the fourth healthiest state in U.S.
Thursday, December 05, 2019
The UnitedHealth Foundation has awarded fourth place to Connecticut in its latest annual state ranking of overall health, down one slot from last year.
The state was bumped down as Vermont vaulted from fourth place to first place in this year’s “America’s Health Rankings.”
Connecticut lost ground in drug deaths per capita, excessive drinking, children in poverty, cases of chlamydia, low birth weights, and premature deaths.
