What is "Get Off the Lists"?

Unfortunately, Edgecombe County is at the top and bottom of many "bad" lists.  This reality is underscored by our position in the statewide county health ranking, where we currently stand at 99th place out of 100 counties. This ranking is based on a collection of various health and socio-economic factors. 

We know those statistics don't tell our whole story. Edgecombe County has a rich history, many great assets, and some of the most amazing and resilient people you'll ever meet. So we don't allow the numbers to define us. However, they do point to areas where we need to make improvements, and they shouldn't be ignored.  

We believe our future will be much brighter than our past! We can get off these lists, or at least move to a better place on  many of them.

With that challenge in front of us, and fueled by a sincere belief that we can change the future of our great County, we have embarked on a movement to work with our citizens and stakeholders to Get Off the Lists!
