In addition to funding key health and wellness initiatives in our community, we’ve played a leading role in developing and activating a community-wide healthcare “movement” called Healthy West Orange.
The idea is to provide important tools and social connections to help local residents eat well, stay active and enjoy life.
Healthy West Orange:
Inspires healthy behaviors at local events, farmer’s markets and festivals
Champions healthy programs through free health screenings, educational classes and group activities
Unites health-minded organizations with local businesses and organizations for whom a healthy community provides meaningful benefits
Advocates for healthy community decisions that support access to quality healthcare, strong education and employment opportunities, adequate housing and transportation, safety and support services, and good air and water quality
The District is a founding champion of Healthy West Orange, along with our partners Orlando Health-Health Central Hospital and the Observer Media Group.
