Twitter Chat About Healthy Kids

A conversation about factors that contribute to healthy communities for children.


U.S. News released its 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals June 11, highlighting the nation’s top hospitals in 10 pediatric specialties. In addition to the rankings came the first-of-its-kind analysis of America's 50 Healthiest Counties for Kids, based on infant deaths, teen births, deaths from injury, and factors such as poverty, education, and access to parks. The county rankings were developed with the help of the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, which evaluates health data for the U.S. population as part of its County Health Rankings and Roadmaps program, a collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
