Our six-county region of the North Country (Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren and Washington counties) offers a unique set of opportunities and challenges as we work together to build a healthy future.
Some of these challenges include:
- Low rates of college education
- Low household income
- High unemployment rates
- High disability rates
- High rates of poverty
These social determinants affect health care
- Smoking and obesity rates are high;
- Mental health and substance abuse affect more than 30 percent of the Medicaid population.
