Placing health first

-A A +A

Another spot at the top for Los Alamos

By Roger Snodgrass

Los Alamos County is the healthiest county in New Mexico, according to a comprehensive national health report released last week.

“I believe it,” said Michelangelo Lobato, coordinator for the Community Health Council. “Los Alamos is such a health-conscious place, and a lot of it relates to education,” he said. “I’m amazed at the programs here.”

The council, a program sponsored by Los Alamos Family Council is currently working on special needs for people with developmental disabilities, youth violence and crime and teen drinking and substance abuse.

Lobato cited the counseling program by Los Alamos Family Council that offers services that aren’t available in many communities, the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and an effective truancy program, as examples of advanced social services contributing to better health outcomes.

“There are a lot of organizations and people who care about themselves and others,” Lobato said.

Research by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation ranked states and counties according to a standard formula that includes factors like how long residents live and how well they feel while they are alive.
