DuPage County has been named one of “America’s 50 Healthiest Counties for Kids,” according to a new set of rankings released by U.S. News and World Report.
With a rank of No. 20, DuPage is the only Illinois county to make the list, which highlights communities that “are safe and child-friendly,” according to a statement from the DuPage County Health Department.
“This ranking is a result of the health department’s commitment to the health care needs of all DuPage County children and families,” said Linda Kurzawa, president of the county’s board of health.
The list identifies counties that have fewer infant deaths, fewer low-birthweight babies, fewer deaths from injuries, fewer teen births and fewer children in poverty, officials said.
