Calhoun county ranks low in health

Lead in text: 
A health study released today ranks Calhoun County near the bottom. Calhoun County placed 78th out of the 82 Michigan counties. Allegan County was ranked the healthiest in our area, at 11th. Most of the Southwest Michigan counties fell between 40th and 60th place. Kalamazoo came in 46th in the health study.
The health of Calhoun County could use a booster shot, if a new study's numbers are accurate. The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released a study today that ranked each county in the nation.
