Report: Nantucket Is Healthiest County In The State

NANTUCKET (CBS) – Island life appears to be good for your health.

A new report ranking the healthiest counties in Massachusetts found that Nantucket tops the list, followed by Dukes, and Middlesex.

The report was released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The least healthy counties were Hampden; Suffolk, which includes Boston; and Bristol.

To come up with these rankings, researchers looked at a number of factors including health records, tobacco and alcohol use, and access to medical care.
