In 2008, Santa Fe was cited as one of the nation’s healthiest towns to live in, according to the AARP. Among the highlights are clean air; healthy, locally grown food; excellent doctors and a vibrant healing arts community.

“…. Santa Fe [is] a healthy place in which to live and retire, too. Its rates of diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol are among the lowest in the country, in part because of a city-funded health campaign aimed at older residents. In addition to offering a 268-bed hospital and easy access to specialists in nearby Albuquerque, Santa Fe is teeming with alternative medicine specialists who graduated from the local University of Natural Medicine or the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts.” AARP
