According to a new report, Vermont ranks second overall in the nation for women and children's health.
United Health Foundation's 2016 America's Health Rankings Health of Woman and Children Report looks at state successes in promoting health of women, infants and children. The report ranks each state based on more than 60 measures of health and well-being from 18 sources of data. 
Vermont is ranked second, after Massachusetts. New Hampshire ranked third.
"This is another in a long series of national indicators that show Vermont's approach to promoting positive health outcomes is making a real difference in people's lives," said Breena Holmes, MD, director of maternal and child health.
