Raquel Bournhonesque, a County Health Rankings public health representative, said counties often move up or down the list relative to how other counties perform. The Health District is working with its governing board, the Southern Nevada Health District Board of Health, and community partners on a number of programs and initiatives that impact areas addressed by the Rankings.
