What Medical Providers Should Know About Alabama

Alabama is currently ranked among the least healthy states in the United States. The state currently has one of the highest rates of diabetes, obesity and smoking. The life expectancy is approximately 75 years, one of the lowest in the countries.

Alabama does have several factors that favor a healthier future. It has one of the lowest rates of binge drinking, and a high immunization coverage. Also the state provides high per capita public health funding compared to other states, showing that the government is committed to the health of its citizens.

Alabama has a strong commitment to public health. A recent initiative by the Public Health department added ECG machines to ambulances so that ECGs could be performed in route to the hospital.

EMTs and other medical providers who treat residents of the state are expected to have an active ACLS card by most Alabama medical employers. ACLS certification or renewal cards can be obtained at one of the class locations listed below or online from our website.

A surprising fact is that over 1.2 million people in the state are considered to be obese. This number increased by over 400,000 in the past 10 years. The rate of diabetes has also doubled in the past 10 years. Public health funding increased as well just in the past year to $116 per person. The rate of uninsured residents has increased to almost 16 percent  in the past decade.

Alabama is ranked 46/50 by AmericasHealthRankings.org for the healthiest states in America for 2011. Public health professionals in the state are raising awareness about the dangers of unhealthy eating and smoking through commercials and school programs.

Policies that restrict smoking in public places are expected to help reduce the rate of smoking. Studies in Colorado and Montana have shown that restricting public smoking has led to reduced heart attack rates.

About Alabama

Alabama became a territory in 1817 and became the 22nd state to join the United States in 1817. The present Constitution of the United States was not adopted by Alabama until 1901. The state capital of Alabama is Montgomery, which is located in the south eastern portion of the state. The population of Alabama is 4,779,736 (2010 Census). The largest city is Birmingham which is located in the north central portion of the state.

The population of Birmingham alone is 212,237. Alabama is 50,744 sq miles in size and its geography ranges from mountains in the north to gulf coast and sandy beaches in the south. In between is swamp, forest, and farm land. The state flower is the Camellia. The state bird is the Yellowhammer. Many locals in Alabama, as well as other southern states will say that the state insect is the mosquito, but in fact, the state insect for Alabama is the Monarch Butterfly.

The state motto of Alabama is "We Dare Defend Our Rights" which speaks strongly of Alabama's influence as a Confederate state during the Civil War. In fact, the Confederate flag was first flown in Alabama after its design and creation there in 1861. The nineteenth century was a great time of expansion and industrialization for the state. There is a great deal of Indian, Civil War, and Civil Rights history in Alabama. Alabama is steeped in history of all kinds, continuing to more recent years and events. Well known figures in history that are a part of Alabama's history include Helen Keller, Hank Aaron, Rosa Parks, Hank Williams, and more.

Alabama is also well known for its contributions to space science. Huntsville, located in the north eastern portion of the state is the location of a U.S. Space and Rocket Center which features a wide variety of programs and museums for space and aviation lovers. Alabama was influential in building the crafts used for the Apollo missions, and Huntsville is home to the Saturn V rocket which has been restored back to its Apollo era splendor.
