Tom Callan, KSL NewsradioAre you curious about whether folks in your community are healthy or sick? The Utah Health Department offers a snapshot of your neighbors and some surprising contrasts around the state.

The report finds the highest rate of obesity in the state is in Glendale, and the lowest rate just blocks away in The Avenues. A daycare worker at the Neighborhood House on Goshen St. says, "I'm a little surprised because we have maybe one or two kids that are actually overweight that I would see as unhealthy."

The report also found that about 5 percent of Utahns have diabetes, but the rate is 10 percent in Pleasant Grove.
