Eatonville in Running for $25,000 Culture of Health Prize

Congratulations to the Town of Eatonville – a semi-finalist for the “Culture of Health” prize from the esteemed Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  The $25,000 cash prize recognizes communities that have placed a priority on health and are creating powerful partnerships and deep commitments to provide everyone, especially those facing the greatest challenges, with the opportunity to live the healthiest life possible.

Healthy Central Florida has had an extensive partnership with the Town of Eatonville for nearly seven years in the effort to promote health.  Additional partners include Florida Hospital, the Winter Park Health Foundation, Hungerford Elementary School, Positive Flow Foundation and many, many others.  Together, with Mayor Cole’s leadership, and other elected officials before him, we are helping Eatonville be one of the healthiest communities in the nation – our collective vision.
