Study: Norfolk County Third Healthiest in Massachusetts

Among Massachusetts' 14 counties, only Dukes County and Middlesex County were healthier than Norfolk, according to the study.

Is Norfolk County the healthiest place in Massachusetts to live? If not, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation says it's right up there.

In a recent study done by the Foundation called "County Health Rankings and Roadmaps," Norfolk ended up third in the state, trailing only Dukes County in first place and Middlesex County in second.

Foxborough is not only part of Norfolk County, it is nicknamed "The Gem of Norfolk County."

In measures ranging from adult obesity and insurance coverage to premature death and teen birth rates, Norfolk County was lower than the state average.
