During National Public Health Week, Boulder County Public Health officials shared some of the local health statistics. While there were positive findings, such as Boulder County‚Äôs low teen birth rate of five births per 1,000 females aged 15 to 19 and residents having easy access to various exercise opportunities by living close to a park or recreation facility, there are also areas of concern that need improvement.

Another challenge highlighted is the high levels of air pollution in the county, surpassing both state and national averages.
