The Kendrick Foundation exists to financially support initiatives that improve the health of Morgan County residents. According to the 2022 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, Morgan County  ranks 41st out of 92 counties in Indiana for health outcomes – 19% of adults report poor or fair health and, on average, 5.1 poor mental health days and 4.3 poor physical health days in the past 30 days. Additionally, 16% report frequent mental distress and 13% report frequent physical distress. Morgan County ranks 30th in the state for health factors – 21% of Morgan County adults smoke, 18% drink excessively, 36% are obese, and 32% are physically inactive. Morgan County has higher rates of drug overdose deaths and deaths by suicide than the state. Many Morgan County residents also lack adequate access to mental health providers and primary care physicians.
