McHenry County Healthy Community Study
The “health” of a community extends far beyond the traditional view focused on select health measures and availability of medical resources. Rather, a healthy community encompasses a broad range of community characteristics that define the ingredients of a healthy place to live.
With this vision in mind, every four years a McHenry County Healthy Community Study is conducted with the intent to understand and address the county’s most pressing needs, involving partners from diverse organizations, in order to improve the health of County residents.

County Health Rankings
The annual County Health Rankings reveal how health is influenced by where we live, learn, work and play. They provide a starting point for change in communities. The rankings provide an easy-to-use snapshot that compares counties within each state, and include information on factors such as jobs, education, housing, community safety, and more.
