New England Pronunciation: /nuː ˈɪŋɡlənd/

New England is a geographical region comprising six states of the northeastern United States: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. It is bordered by the state of New York to the west and by the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec to the northeast and north, respectively.


The term "New England" was coined by Captain John Smith in his 1616 work "A Description of New England," and was officially sanctioned on November 3, 1620, when the charter of the Virginia Company of Plymouth was replaced by a royal charter for the Plymouth Council for New England, a joint-stock company established to colonize and govern the region.

Health Issues

Like other regions, New England faces a variety of health issues. These include chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, as well as mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety. The region has also been significantly impacted by the opioid epidemic.
