An unacceptable 15% of New York residents do not have health insurance. Lack of access to care and education can lead to preventable diseases. People may be wary of seeking care, even in urgent situations, simply out of fear of how much it may cost.
Another top concern is how well children in New York are faring. The state ranks 40th in terms of high school graduation rates. A lot of young people are living in poverty which, combined with low immunization numbers, is a recipe for disaster.
On the other hand, New York has improved drastically since last year in some key categories. Smoking is in decline, just like in many other parts of the country. Now about 15% of adult residents smoke which is a great improvement. However, 2.3 million people are still regularly reaching for a pack.
Many employers in New York require ACLS certification for staff who regularly work in emergency situations. Your HR team may not require it right now, but chances are it will soon become a necessity. It’s helpful to be prepared and might even give you a boost up that career ladder.
New York spends quite a bit on public health funding averaging $70.28 per person. This is the 6th highest in the country, which says a lot for how important public health funding is.
Obesity is a national crisis and New Yorkers do not have it any easier. The number of people who are grossly overweight has been steadily increasing. Obese adults now make up 24.5% of the entire population.
Diabetes and obesity can go hand in hand. This oftentimes preventable disease has also spiked in the last 10 years. More than 1.3 million adults have been diagnosed as diabetic and may depend on costly medicine to live a full life.

Giovanni da Verrazano was the first to explore the New York Bay in 1524. Englishman Henry Hudson, who was sent by the Dutch, sailed from the bay, up the river, which now carries his name in 1609. Northern New York was also explored in 1609 and claimed by Samuel de Champlain for France. The first settlement was established in 1624 in what is now Albany (then Fort Orange). About a year later Manhattan was purchased by Peter Minuit from local Indians, and the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam was established. New Amsterdam was surrendered to English forces in 1664, and is now New York City.
New York became heavily commercialized following the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825. This growth has continued to present day with a strong production of livestock and agriculture, and various manufacturing plants. Manufacturing in New York accounts for approximately 587,000 jobs across the state (2005). New York’s history is one steeped in American heritage. No other New York location is testament to this more than New York City. New York City is the hub of the northeast.
