Eau Claire One of State's Healthiest Counties

By  | 

An annual state Study of County Health ranked Eau Claire as the third healthiest county in Wisconsin after Ozaukee and Waukesha.

Eau Claire City County Health Director Jim Ryder says several factors contributed to the ranking, including community efforts on everything from reducing teen pregnancy to levels of physical activity.

Ryder says issues Eau Claire still needs to work on include binge drinking and smoking during pregnancy.

The top two healthiest counties were Ozaukee and Waukesha.
