Hickory

I have a prompt for my new post to research the area my interview person is from. Hickory, North Carolina  is located in the Catawba county area, and ranks 18th in health outcomes in North Carolina. One of the worst issues it has is the physical environment they are located in. Their access to healthy food choices is 67% compared to the national average of 92%. Another problem is the unemployment rate which stands at 14%, above both the North Carolina’s and the national average.  However they have great clinical health care ranking 12th in NC. It will be interesting seeing how my interviewee differs from Robinson, Hoke, and Scotland counties in comparison to overall health. A question that will be interesting to ask will be about the everyday health choices such as: eating, exercise, and environment.
