The count y has a slightly lower death rate than the state average. The most frequent causes of death are cancer and heart disease. Lung cancer accounts for the most cancer deaths.Health AssessmentIn an effort to improve the health of the residents of Glades County, a collaborative partnership was formed between the Glades County Health Department and the Health Planning Council of Southwest Florida, Inc. (HPC) for the purpose of conducting a community health needs assessment for use b y the Glades County Health Department and other community partners. The Glades County Health Department created a community committee comprised of area residents and business leaders who showed an interest in improving the health of their community. The Hendry Glades Public Health System Task Force (H-GPHSTF) held monthly meetings for the duration of the project to aid in the creation and implementation of this needs assessment. HPC reviewed numerous data sources and received feedback from the HendryGlades Public Health System Task Force as well as from members of the communit y through surveys and interviews. The Hendry-Glades Public Health System Task Force (H-GPHSTF) reviewed the preliminary dat a that was collected, and provided feedback to the Health Planning Council.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 1, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonThe White-eyed Vireo’s breeding range extends from Nebraska to Massachusetts, south into Eastern Mexico and throughout Florida. The Florida resident population usually nests in May or June, however, up to two broods may be raised from late February to mid-August. Its wintering ground extends from the Southern Gulf Coast region to Central America, from coastal North Carolina to th ,lm./e Bahamas, and from Bermuda south to the Caribbean. Peak migration in Florida is normally in March and April and during September and October. This small songbird has olive-green upper parts, yellow sides, a white throat and two white wingbars. It has white eyes with yellow spectacles. Immature birds have plumage similar to the adult birds, but they have brown eyes. Both the male and the female White-eyed Vireo sing their primary song on the wintering grounds. They are known for their explosive song made of short, rapid and harsh notes, with sharp chips at the beginning and the end. White-eyed Vireo are usually found in habitats that contain scrubs in overgrown pastures, old elds, wood margins, cypress swamps and mangroves. They usually avoid urban areas, but may be found in wooded parks or undeveloped wooded areas. These birds bathe by rubbing against the wet foliage. White-eyed Vireo will make short hops or ights and pause to look for insects by tilting their heads and peering. They pick, hover and reach, lunge, hang and leap as they glean for insects, spiders and small lizards. In the fall and winter, they supplement their diet with seeds and berries. The White-eyed Vireo’s open cupped nest is usually located in a dense thicket, suspended from a small branch located in the fork of a tree about one to eight feet above the ground. This nest, made up of leaves, bark, plant ber or bits of paper, is held together with insect silk and spider webbing. The outside is decorated with lichens, moss or leaves and is lined with ne grass, small roots or hair. The female lays a clutch of three to ve white eggs with sparse brown or black spotting. Both parents take turns incubating the eggs for 12 to 15 days. The young, born helpless and naked, edge at about 14 days old. White-eyed Vireo are being heard and seen throughout inland Florida. Go to online websites or use apps to listen to the calls of this common breeding bird. For information about the free trips to STA5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5) on August 17 or September 21, go to: www.hendrygladesaudubon.org or call 863-674-0695. Reservations are required for these escorted driving trips. Inland Birding Fun: White-eyed Vireo Put Yourself in Good HandsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchA basketball in my hands is worth about $10 with the Walmart special. A basketball in Michael Jordan’s hands is worth over $33 million. A football in my hands is worth an afternoon of fun. A football in the hands of Peyton Manning is worth $15 million a season. A golf club in my hands is almost useless. But in the hands of Tiger Woods, it’s worth multiple major golf championships. A piano in my hands will pluck out a simple and crude “Yankee Doodle,” but in the hands of an accomplished musician, it can produce a concerto. In all of these things, the worth and value of the object depends mostly on whose hands it is in. The most ordinary object can become great in the hands of a master. Likewise, the most ordinary person can also become great when they place themselves in the hands of a master. As Christians, we are blessed to have the Master of masters wanting to make masterpieces out of each one of us, regardless of who we are or what we’ve done. The Bible is full of stories of how God did extraordinary things through ordinary people who placed themselves in His hands. In the hands of the Master, they became masterpieces. A rod in Moses’ hand parts a sea that had been an obstacle. A sling shot in the hands of David becomes a mighty weapon that slays a Goliath of a problem. A boys’ simple lunch of two sardines and ve small barley rolls, when blessed by the hands of Jesus, becomes a feast that feeds a multitude. The stories continue, but they are more than just accounts of what God did then, they are testimonies of what God is still doing today. The reality is that amazing things still happen when ordinary men and women place themselves in the hands of God. What seems improbable or impossible becomes a reality. Things are accomplished that seemingly could not have been accomplished: seas of obstacles are parted, Goliath problems are done away with, and the little becomes much – all because of the Master’s touch. These things can happen in our lives when we place our hopes, our dreams, our families and our relationships in God’s hands, and we see what kind of a masterpiece He creates for us. Great things also happen when we are able to place our concerns, our worries and our fears in the Master’s hands and let Him handle those, as well. If we are able to do these things, then we will nd that we not only will be in good hands, but we will be in God’s hands. We will come to know His peace that passes understanding and we will experience His blessings in ways that we have never experienced them before.

THERE ARE NO SERMONS IN STONES. IT IS EASIER TO GET A SPARK OUT OF A STONE THAN A MORAL. -BURROUGHS Crossword Puzzle Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.59/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.65/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 17.7 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 15.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 14.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “After an impressive run that saw the national average begin to approach its springtime high, it appears prices have plateaued -at least for now,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Oil prices appear to be taking a breather, but with the peak of hurricane season approaching, a continued upward trajectory in gasoline prices is certainly possible, should we see a major storm take aim for the Gulf. Crude inventories have also declined four consecutive weeks, and large decreases in crude inventories in the near future may be cause for rising oil prices as well,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

With Lake Okeechobee’s water level continuing to rise from months of above-average rainfall, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is again taking emergency action to capture water from the Caloosahatchee River to reduce freshwater impacts on the downstream estuary. “Creating storage to capture ows from the rapidly rising lake is crucial to the health of the Caloosahatchee River and Estuary,” said SFWMD Governing Board member Mitch Hutchcraft, who represents the Southw est Coast at large. “Every acre we can identify and utilize to hold water bene ts the river, the estuary and the system as a whole.” As part of the district’s sustained effort to identify opportunities for storage, water w ill be pumped onto the site of the Caloosahatchee River (C-43) West Basin Storage Reservoir, a future Everglades restoration project in Hendry County. Emergency operations will occur as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues discharging water from the lake to the river for ood control and protection of the Herbert Hoover Dike. This site was identi ed and successfully utilized in 2012 for the same purpose. Building on that effort, the district has continued to store water, which would have otherwise owed to the estuary, on the property. All necessary permits and authorizations have been obtained from partners such as the corps, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Hendry County to pump additional water onto 3,500 acres at the site as conditions allow. Overall capacity to capture ows from the river is dependent on how much rain falls in the immediate area. The district was successful in pumping 9,000 acre-feet of water onto the site following heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Isaac in 2012. District engineers designed the emergency project, which was accomplished by Clewiston Field Station crews installing two, 42-inch temporary pumps that could move 300 cubic feet per second from a tributary of the river. Existing infrastructure on the property, plus pumping coordination with the LaBelle Private Drainage District, allowed the water to be pumped into the area during the operation from Oct. 13, 2012, through Nov. 29, 2012. Since 2005, the district has been working with a coalition of agencies, environmental organizations, ranchers and researchers to enhance opportunities for storing excess surface water on private, tribal and public lands. Managing water on these lands, known as the Dispersed Water Management Program, is one tool to reduce the amount of water delivered during the wet season into the lake and discharged to coastal estuaries for ood protection. Shallow water retention also provides valuable groundwater recharge for water supply, opportunities for water quality improvement and rehydration of drained systems. Through a combination of public and private projects:  Approximately 61,261 acre-feet of storage has been created through the Dispersed Water Management Program since 2005.  An additional 72,000 acre-feet of storage has been created through regional public facilities, including reservoirs, restoration projects and Stormwater Treatment Areas.C-43 BackgroundThe Caloosahatchee River (C-43) West Storage Basin Reservoir, located on former farmland west of LaBelle, is a key project in the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration New reservoir to store water from the Caloosahatchee for future use 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

In lieu of owers, family suggest donations to Hope Hospice. Arrangements by Akin-Davis Funeral Home Clewiston. Plan. When the restoration project is complete, the reservoir will hold approximately 170,000 acre-feet of water, with maximum depths ranging from 15 feet to 25 feet across the expanse. The restoration project will provide storage needed for the estuary by capturing and storing local basin runoff as well as Lake Okeechobee regulatory releases. This will reduce lake discharges reaching the estuary, improve the health of the Caloosahatchee ecosystem and revitalize sh and oyster habitats by reducing the frequency of undesirable salinity ranges. Releases of water from the reservoir during the dry season will provide essential ows, resulting in improved salinity balance, survival of young sh and shell sh and improved ecological health.

Heavy rainfall continued over the weekend, leaving the Okeechobee Basin saturated as water managers try to minimize ooding in the populated areas. All of the water storage areas are full, according to Gary Ritter of the South Florida W ater Management District. Over the weekend Lake Okeechobee rose from 15.63 on Friday to 15.74 feet on Monday. By Tuesday, the lake level was 15.78 ft. In ows averaged 16,220 cubic feet per second while discharges averaged 11,290 cubic feet per second. As the lake rises, so does the risk that the Herbert Hoover Dike may fail. Some areas south of the lake are less than 12 feet above sea level, so when the lake level is high, the pressure can force water through the earthen berm. The corps tries to maintain the level of Lake Okeechobee between 12.5 and 15.5 feet which is considered the optimal range to balance safety, water supply needs and the ecological health of the lake. The Army Corps of Engineers has teams conducting safety inspections of the dike around Lake Okeechobee. The corps 2014 budget request lists the Herbert Hoover Dike as a Level 1 risk. Level 1 risk structures are at extreme high risk of failure without intervention. The 143-mile dike surrounds Lake Okeechobee. The rst embankments around Lake Okeechobee were constructed by local interests from sand and muck, circa 1915. Hurricane tides overtopped the original embankments in 1926 and 1928, resulting in over 2,500 deaths. The River and Harbor Act of 1930 authorized the construction of 67.8 miles of levee along the south shore of the lake and 15.7 miles along the north shore. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed the levees between 1932 and 1938. A major hurricane in 1947 prompted the need for additional ood and storm damage reduction work. As a result, Congress passed the Flood Control Act of 1948 authorizing the rst phase of the Central and South Florida (C&SF) Project, a comprehensive plan to provide ood and storm damage reduction and other water control bene ts in central and south Florida. The new dike system was completed in the late 1960s and named the Herbert Hoover Dike. The dike system consists of 143 miles of levee with 19 culverts, hurricane gates and other water control structures. The dike was built with gravel, rock, limestone, sand and shell. These natural materials allow water to ow through at times. This is a normal process called seepage. When the water level in the lake is too high, however, the water pressure causes extra seepage that can lead to internal erosion, or piping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began maximum water releases out of Lake Okeechobee through the Okeechobee Waterway on July 26 due to sustained high Lake Okeechobee water levels and continued increase in the rate of rise. Maximum releases will remain in place until further notice. These maximum releases include releases through the Okeechobee Waterwa y locks to augment the discharge capabilit y of the spillways. As a result, navigation interests may be affected. Lockage restrictions may be in place at the discretion of the loc k operators for safety reasons, depending on conditions. All of South Florida has experienced above-average rainfall since June 1. The annual wet season so far has brought aboveaverage rainfall throughout the South Florida Water Management District's (SFWMD) 16-county region. District-wide, 19.09 inches of rain fell from the start of June through mid-July, representing 147 percent of average, or 6.07 inches above average. Following several weeks o f above-average rainfall including from Tropical Storm Andrea in early June water levels are currently at or above scheduled levels in key areas, such as some lakes in the Kissimmee region and the Water Conservation Areas. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 1, 2013 More rain brings concerns about dike safety Special to the Glades County Democrat/ USACOEThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began maximum water releases out of Lake Okeechobee through the Okeechobee Waterway (OWW) (i.e. east and west) beginning on July 25 due to sustained, high Lake Okeechobee water levels and continued increase in the rate of rise. As a result, navigation interests may be affected. Lockage restrictions may be in place at the discretion of the lock operators for safety reasons, depending on conditions.

Special to the Glades County Democrat LABELLE—Residents living in and around the LaBelle, Fla. community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church will host Life Line Screening on Aug. 20. The site is located at 310 Campbell Street in LaBelle. Mary Lou A lvadi of Niceville, Fla. attended a Life Line Screening and said, “Thank you, Life Line Screening, for making me aware of a problem I never knew existed.” Four key points every person needs to know:  Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability.  80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke.  Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient. Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Packages start at $159. All ve screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-2371287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.

community needs are identi ed through quantitative data analysis of demographic, socioeconomic and health status information, and qualitative interviews, the strategic planning process can begin.Population Demographics Glades County has a population of 12,774. The county has a far lower population density than the Florida average; about 17 persons per square mile compared to a state average of 357 persons per square mile. It has the second smallest population density (Liberty County is the smallest, with a population density of 10.35). The age distribution for Glades County is quite similar to the distribution for the state as a whole. The largest proportion of the population of the county is between the ages of 25 and 64. 57.8 percent of the residents of Glades County are male while 42.2 percent are female; statewide the percentages are 48.9 percent male and 51.1 percent female. 20.1 percent of the population of Glades County is non-white, which is similar to the statewide population comprised of 21.5 percent non-whites. About 22 percent of the residents of Glades County identify as Hispanic; of those 89 percent are identi ed as white.Socioeconomic Indicators The unemployment rate jumped from 4.7 percent in 2000 to 10. 4 percent in 2010; this rate is lower than the state rate of 11.3 percent. Of those residents who are employed, the average annual income in Glades County is 11 percent lower than the average for the state. The percent of people living under the poverty level in Glades County is higher than the state as a whole (22.2 percent Glades vs. 17.0 percent state) Fewer residents of Glades County have received a high school diploma than the state average (71.3 percent Glades vs. 85.6 percent state). A much lower percentage of people in Glades County who are aged 25 and older have received a Bachelor's degree than the percentage of residents of Florida who have done the same (11.3 percent vs. 25.7 percent state). Among working adults in Glades County the most common areas of employment are agriculture, forestry, shing, and mining, construction, education and health services, and public administration.Health Rankings County Health Rankings & Roadmaps has Glades County currently ranked the 36th healthiest out of 67 counties in Florida for Health Outcomes. Glades County is ranked 59th healthiest for Health Factors.Leading Causes of Death The death rate for Glades County is slightly lower than the state average (641.3 Glades three year rate vs. 676.2 state). The death rate for Glades County has fallen consistently for the past ten years. The most frequent causes of death for people in Glades County are cancer and heart disease. Together they accounted for more than 43 percent of the deaths in 2011. Death rates for heart disease are lower than the state average (148.6 per 100,000 Glades vs. 154.3 state). The death rate from heart disease in Glades County has been declining. Among the types of cancer, lung cancer causes the highest number of deaths in Glades County. Cancer and heart disease are the leading causes of death for both whites and blacks. While the rate for heart disease is higher among whites than black (155.5 white population vs. 60.0 black population), the rate of death from cancer is the opposite (140.9 white population vs. 183.0 black population).Communicable Diseases Glades County ranks below the state average rate for all sexually transmitted diseases and many vaccine preventable diseases. Chlamydia is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease in Glades County with an average of 39 cases per year between 2009 and 2011. That works out to a rate per 100,000 of 306, slightly lower than the state average of 396.0. This number has been increasing rapidly. Pertussis (commonly known as whooping cough) and Hepatitis B are the most prevalent vaccine preventable disease in Glades County with one case each between 2009 and 2011. An average of 1.3 people per year was diagnosed with AIDS in Glades County between 2009 and 2011. The rate per 100,000 in Glades County is 10.4 compared to a rate of 18 .9 for the state as a whole.Maternal and Child Health On average, 78.7 babies were born per year in Glades County between 2009 and 2011. There are more babies born to mothers between the ages of 15 and 19 in Glades County than the Florida average (46.0 Glades vs. 32.9 state). Infant mortality rates are very variable due to the small numbers involved. Two infant deaths in 2010 caused a large upswing. There were no infant deaths in 2011. The percent of infants born with a low birth weight has decreased (2.2 for 20072009 vs. 1.3 for 2009-2011), and is slightly lower than the state average (1.6).Hospitalizations The Prevention Quality Indicators (PQIs) are a set of measures that can be used with hospital inpatient discharge data to identify quality of care for "ambulatory care sensitive conditions." These are conditions for which good outpatient or preventative care can potentially eliminate the need for hospitalization or for which early intervention can prevent complications or more severe disease. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (this category includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema), congestive heart failure, and bacterial pneumonia are the most common preventable causes of hospitalizations for Glades County residents. Compared to Florida as a whole, Glades County's 2011 rates of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hypertension, congestive heart failure, and bacterial pneumonia were signi cantly higher. COPD is particularly high; nearly three times the Florida rate. Hypertension is the number one cause of hospitalization for a chronic condition in Glades County. The hospitalization rates for AIDS have begun to fall over the last few years.Emergency Room Visits Glades County Residents made 2,160 visits to hospitals in 2011 that did not result in an inpatient admission. More than half of the emergency room visits by Glades County residents were made to Hendry Regional Medical Center in Hendry County. The next four hospitals that received the largest number of visits from Glades County residents are in Okeechobee, Palm Beach, Highlands and Lee Counties respectively.Health ResourcesAccess to health care is the key to achieving a healthy community and is a primary goal of health policy in Florida. This section will review health coverage of Glades County residents including the rate of uninsured residents, licensed providers and facilities, and federal health professional shortage designations.Medicaid As of 2011, approximately 8,600 out of every 100,000 people in Glades County were enrolled in Medicaid; the state rate is approximately 16,500 per 100,000. At both the state and the county level, there was a noticeable increase in the number of people enrolled in Medicaid between 2007 and 2008. Both rates have continued to climb since then.Uninsured In 2010, Glades County was estimated as having 36.8 percent of adults without health insurance; this compares to a rate o f 29.8 percent for Florida as a whole.Physicians and FacilitiesAs of 2011, there were two, licensed physicians in Glades County. That works out to about 15.7 doctors for every 100,000 residents; that is a much lower rate than the state average of about 342 doctors for ever y 100,000 residents. (Please note that the number of licensed providers does not necessarily equal the number of practicing providers. These numbers may include providers who work in another county, only work part time, or are retired.) The county has a much lower rate per 100,000 than the state for every major category of physician. There are no hospital or nursing home beds in Glades County. The Glades County Health Department spent $1,064,472 dollars in 2011; that places the rate of expenditure per 100,000 residents at nearly double the state average. It is typical for rural counties to have a signi cantl y higher rate of expenditure than the state average. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010ANNOUNCING We have opened a new location in LaBelle and Clewiston to better serve the south lake area.

Federal Health Professional Shortage DesignationsThere are two types of health professional shortage designations: Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) and Medically Underserved Areas or Populations (MUAs/ MUPs). Both designations consider primary care physician-to-population ratios, other high-need indicators, and barriers to access care.  Glades County has been designated as a Medically Underserved Area.  Glades County has been designated as Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) for primary care.  Its Low Income/Migrant Farmworker Populations have been designated as HPSA for dental.  The Glades/Hendry Catchment area has been designated as having a shortage of two mental health professionalsSuicides Since 2002, Glades County has had a higher suicide rate than the state average. The rate for the county fell from a peak of 19.5 deaths by suicide per 100,000 residents in 2007 to 16.9 for 2011. However, a small number of suicides can have a large impact on the rates.Crime and Domestic Violence Residents in Glades County are more likely to be the victim of a domestic violence offense than the average resident of Florida (618.8 per 100,000 Glades vs. 605.0 state) and are as likely to be the victim of a murder (5.2 per 100,000 Glades vs. 5.3).  The county fares worse than the state on alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes; the rates in Glades County are higher in all three categories than the state average, even ranking in the 4th Quartile for alcohol-related motor vehicle crash deaths.Baker ActThe Florida Mental Health Act of 1971 (commonly known as the “Baker Act”) is a statute allowing for involuntary examination of an individual. There must be evidence that the person has a mental illness and is a harm to self, harm to others, or self-neglectful.  There were 26 involuntary examinations in Glades County in 2011. This number has uctuated in the years since 2002.  The percent of the population in Glades County that was given an involuntary exam is signi cantly lower than the state average. Counties that do not have an admitting facility typically have lower rates than the state average.Florida Youth Substance Abuse SurveyThe Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey is based on the “Communities That Care” survey, which measures the prevalence and frequency of drug use, the prevalence and frequency of other antisocial behaviors, and the degree to which risk and protective factors exist that can predict alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, delinquency, gang involvement and other problem behaviors in adolescents.  Alcohol use in the past 30 days was 23.8 percent for Glades County students, which was slightly lower than the state average of 24.6 percent.  Alcohol use has been on the decline for Glades County students in the years surveyed, with a high of 35.8 percent in 2002.  The percentage of students reporting cigarette use over the past 30 days was considerably higher in Glades County than the Florida average (15.0 percent Glades vs. 6 .6 percent state).  Past-30-day marijuana use for Glades County students was slightly higher than for the state as a whole (15.1 percent Glades vs. 12.4 percent State). Up until 2012, marijuana use had been on the decline, with a low of 7.2 percent in 2010.Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance SurveyThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began the Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (BRFSS) in the early 1980s in a handful of states. Today, all states participate in the survey. The 2010 Florida BRFSS provides individual counties and the state with a rich data source to estimate the prevalence of personal health behaviors that contribute to mortality and morbidity among adults.  The percent of adults who reported that they engage in heavy or binge drinking increased from 12.5 percent in 2007 to 16.6 percent in 2010. This is above the state average of 15.0 percent.  Persons with less than a high school education reported heavy or binge drinking the least (2.9 percent) compared to their more educated counterparts (20. 5 percent high school diploma/GED; 19.6 percent more than high school education).  Women over 18 years of age in Glades County were more likely than women across the state as a whole to report that they had received a pap test in the last year (68.0 percent Glades vs. 57.1 percent state).  A lower percentage of women 40 years or older in Glades County had received a mammogram than the state average (48.6 percent Glades vs. 61.9 percent state).  Residents of Glades County over the age of 50 indicated that they are less likely to have received a blood stool test than their counterparts across the state (5.1 percent Glades vs. 14.7 percent state).  Fewer adults in Glades County reported that they had visited a dentist or dental clinic in the past year than the number who said the same for the state (53 .6 percent Glades vs. 64.7 percent state).  Non Hispanic black residents of Glades County had higher rates out of adults who had a permanent tooth removed because of tooth decay or gum disease, compared to their counterparts across the state (93.4 percent Glades vs. 62.4 percent state).  A similar number of adults in Glades County and the state of Florida as a whole reported that they were unable to see a doctor at least once in the previous year due to cost (17.0 percent Glades vs. 17.3 percent state).  66.4 percent of adults in Glades Count y stated that they have some type of health insurance coverage; in 2007 the response was 79.2 percent. The state average is 83.0 percent.  81.1 percent of persons with an income of $50,000 or more are insured compared to 42.8 percent of those making less than $25,000 per year.  69.2 percent of Glades County residents reported feeling in good or excellent health; which was lower than the state’s rate of 82.9 percent.  The persons reporting to be “satised” or “very satis ed” with their lives was slightly lower than the state rate, with 89.8 percent in Glades County and 93.1 percent for the state.  30.8 percent of adults less than 65 years of age reported that they have ever been tested for HIV. That is much lower than the state average of 48.4 percent  75.1 percent of Glades County residents are overweight or obese. This is an increase from 2007 (58.2 percent) and higher than the state rate of 65.0 percent. Men in Glades County are more likely to be overweight or obese than women (79.1 percent men vs. 69.2 percent women).
