KDHE releases state wellness survey results


A study released by The Kansas Department Of Health And Environment reveals several health and wellness concerns among the state population.

The results are from the 2011 Kansas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.  It tracks health conditions and risk behaviors in a phone survey.

The survey shows that nearly 30 percent of Kansans are classified as “obese”.    About the same number have high blood pressure.

It also shows that 36 percent of Kansans don’t have dental insurance and 22 percent of the state population smokes.

The telephone survey included adults 18 and over.
