By Emma Rausch
 
Wabash County now ranks 61st of Indiana’s 92 counties in overall health, but has the potential to rank 26th, according to a recent study by County Health Rankings and Roadmaps (CHRR).
 
Over the last five years, the county has dropped nearly 10 rankings in the survey’s Health Outcomes category – which addresses how healthy a county currently is – but improved 24 rankings in Health Factors, which addresses how healthy a county could be in the future, according to the data.
 
To ensure the county’s healthy future, Be Well Wabash County will host a health seminar on Tuesday, April 26, with local community leaders to brainstorm and make plans to encourage healthy living throughout the county over the next nine years, according to Bryce Lindsay, Be Well strategic planning committee member.
