Healthy Competition: How County Health
Rankings Are Catalyzing Change

Kentuckians love the competition among sports teams. But what if that same spirit of competition was transferred to health? County health rankings are produced each year by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. KET's Health Three60 looks at communities that are taking those health statistics seriously and making positive changes in "Healthy Competition: How County Health Rankings Are Catalyzing Change."
