Disparities Key to Drop in Utah Health Ranking

Utah slipped from 2nd to 7th in the most recent America's Health Rankings report, the lowest ranking Utah has ever had.  The United Health Foundation lists health disparities as one of three key Utah weaknesses, along with a shortage of primary care physicians and low funding for public health.

Utah ranked 44th in the nation in the"geographic disparity" category, which measures the variations in death rates from one county to another. Morgan, Cache and Summit counties have the lowest death rates in the state while Duchesne, Carbon and Beaver counties have the highest death rates.
