Nebraska ranks 11th in healthiest states|
A new study ranking the nation's healthiest states puts Nebraska at number-11 for the second year in a row. Dr. Rhonda Randall, of the United Health Foundation, says the report finds progress on our overall health was driven by improvements in more than two-thirds of health measures, including smoking and physical inactivity. While Nebraska ranked number-11 on the list this year, Hawaii was tops, followed by Vermont, Minnesota, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The lowest ranked states are: West Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas and in last place, Mississippi.
