WE FIGHT FOR HEALTH
Being healthy is central to living a better life. Whether it’s access to regular check-ups, having someone to talk to about your mental well-being or learning healthy behaviors, being healthy can dramatically influence someone’s life. Last year, 28,973 Central Floridians participated in programs and services that helped them avoid risky behaviors and increase their health and wellbeing.
