New report ranks health status of the counties in Minnesota


WILLMAR -- Ann Stehn already had a fairly good idea of how Kandiyohi County stacks up when it comes to health.

But a new set of county-by-county rankings helps further reinforce where the county is strong and where more work is needed, said Stehn, director of Kandiyohi County Public Health.

"This is really a snapshot of how things are," she said. "This just re-emphasizes those things that are key for the health of the whole community."
