Why Place Matters: Building a Movement for Healthy Communities

January 29, 2012

Prompt #2

           The county I researched was Robeson County. Overall I think that this county isn’t that healthy, because of our status of having the highest STD rates in the state and the high amount of Drug Abuse/Alcoholism. Robeson County also has a high rate of car fatalities. I think this mostly comes from Drinking and Driving. With the crackdown on drug distribution and drinking and driving laws, I think law enforcement has taken a big step to fight back. This will dramatically improve the health of the county in my opinion. The STD problem how ever wont be changing for a while. This goes hand in hand with the drug problem, because I am pretty sure a majority of the cases recorded were from drug addicts.
