When it comes to making time for a little R&R, Arizona does it as well as any state in the U.S. A new study shows our state is in the top 3 in vacation days used.
According to Project:Time Off, Colorado is number one with an average of 20.3 vacation days used. Virginia is next at 18.9 and then our state at 18.8.

Once you’ve had a chance to read a few of them, we’d love to hear your thoughts on whether you believe vacations are important. Generating meaningful dialogue around the health stories making headlines is another way we are working toward our long-term goal of one day making Arizona the Healthiest State in the Nation!
