Healthiest California County Still Has Work to Do
For the 11th time in 12 years, Marin was ranked as the healthiest county in California. The 2021 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps report confirms why we love living here: great places to exercise and a community focus on healthy eating and high-quality medical care.
But county Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis emphasizes that the report’s findings apply unevenly across Marin along lines of race and income. “As a county, we’re doing well overall, but our weakness is inequities within Marin,” he says. “That’s the work ahead of us as a community. When all are able to thrive, that will be real cause for celebration.”
