U.S. Failing to Meet Goals for Women's Health: Report
Date:12/9/2010

ii has the lowest heart disease death rate at 60.9 per 100,000.
  • More than 33 percent of women in Mississippi are obese, the highest rate in the nation, compared with 19 percent in Colorado, the lowest.
  • Nearly 13 percent of women in West Virginia have diabetes, the highest rate in the nation, compared with 5 percent in Alaska, the lowest.
  • Dr. Olveen Carrasquillo, chief of the division of general internal medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, said she was "not surprised by the report."

    "The reductions in the biggest killers of women, cardiovascular disease and some cancers, are probably the biggest victories we have had in health in the last 20 years," he said. "But clearly there are a ways to go."

    Carrasquillo noted that it is not surprising to see diabetes levels rising as obesity and lack of physical activity increase among women. That also accounts for the increases in blood pressure, he said.

    The increase in binge drinking may just indicate that women are catching up with men, Carrasquillo noted.

    The new report, titled Making the Grade on Women's Health: A National and State-by-State Report Card, makes it critical that prevention and wellness programs continued to be funded under health care reform, he said.
