City of Laredo’s poor health ranking highlights need for addressing health challenges

Laredo, Texas is facing significant challenges in its health support system, according to a recent study by WalletHub comparing over 180 U.S. cities. The city ranks poorly in key health areas such as affordable medical care, access to mental health counselors, and healthy food options. Additionally, there is a low percentage of physically active adults in Laredo.

Despite these challenges, the Laredo Public Health department is taking proactive steps to address the issues. In response to the findings, the department is launching a Lifestyle Medicine Program to provide resources and support for lifestyle modifications. Dr. Richard Chamberlain, the Public Health Director for the City of Laredo, emphasizes the importance of factors such as adequate nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sufficient sleep, social connections, and limiting risky behaviors like alcohol and tobacco use for overall health.

For those interested in improving their health, Laredo offers programs like “Viviendo Mejor” that promote active living and provide free lab tests.
