Stark Disparities Persist in County Health Rankings

The Heartland Health Monitor reporting collaboration focuses on health issues in the Midwest.

New county health rankings for Kansas show vast disparities between poor and wealthier regions of the state. Health experts say areas that are hurting economically also suffer from what they call “toxic stress.” Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson explains.

Heartland Health Monitor is a reporting collaboration focused on health issues and their impact in Kansas and Missouri. The partners — Kansas Public Radio, KCUR Public Radio, KCPT Public Television and KHI News Service — strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of health and health-related issues.
