Health Care Improvement in Pueblo Commonwealth …

12.29.2358 hours ago

1. The high-desert city of Pueblo, home to over 108,000 residents in southeastern Colorado, is a world apart from the buzzing economy that lines the Denver-to-Boulder corridor just a few hours north. Once known as the “Pittsburgh of the West,” the region evolved around the steel industry, with the largest mill owned by John D. Rockefeller. It suffered through many boom-and-bust cycles in the 19th and 20th centuries, but the collapse of the steel market in 1982 and the recent recession were the worst blows, shuttering all but one of the mills and draining away thousands of jobs. For the past several decades, many of the region’s residents have lived in generational poverty; nearly half (46%) subsist on incomes that are less than twice the federal poverty level. Hispanics make up a large portion of the population (41%). One of four adults smoke and nearly a third are obese, both risk factors for diabetes, which is twice as prevalent among adults in Pueblo County as in Colorado (13.6% vs....
