The Gallup Poll people conducted a survey ending in December of 2013, asking people across the United States if they thought their state was the best or worst to live in (or somewhere in between). The results confirm what we at NRTRC already knew. Our region is the best, bar none. The top four states were, in order of highest rating: Montana, Alaska, Utah and Wyoming. Oregon placed 11th, Washington 13th. Idaho was lowest on the scale at 16th, beating out 34 states. That’s not bad. Our seven states ranked in the top 16. As we expand #Telehealth accessibility to our rural and frontier residents, I suspect we’ll soon be seven of the top seven. Way to go, Northwest!
