When it comes to finding good health in Maryland, our area has plenty of options.

A public health advocacy organization released a list of the top healthiest Maryland counties. At number one was Montgomery County, next was Howard, followed by Carroll County.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, used education, jobs, children living in poverty as well as access to health care providers, and obesity rates to come up with their findings.

Overall as a state, 14 percent are listed as being in poor or fair health.
