2012 Child Health Report Card County Data Cards

Date Covered: 

North Carolina's future prosperity is shaped by children's health status, as well as where they live, learn, and grow, according to a new report by Action for Children North Carolina and the North Carolina Institute of Medicine. 

Many chronic, costly, health challenges North Carolina will face in the future have their roots in the early years of life. These include conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and mental health problems.  Reducing the incidence and prevalence of these conditions, or lessening their effects, could have large payoffs for the state's future health costs in addition to improving health.
