Buncombe County ranked 19th healthiest county in NC, a drop from No. 14 last year

A national study released today by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute shows that Buncombe County remains one of the top 20 counties in the state for overall county health rankings for the third year in a row. However, the No. 19 ranking received this year was a drop from the No. 14 spot held by the county last year. (Graphic by Emily Busey)
