Healthy West Orange is a grassroots movement to inspire west Orange County to become the healthiest community in the nation. We provide important tools and social connections to help local residents eat well, stay active and enjoy life.
We Inspire Healthy Behaviors.
You’ll see us at local events, farmer’s markets and festivals encouraging residents to “Join the Movement” to live a healthier life. Our website is full of information and resources to help folks make better lifestyle choices. And we use social media to encourage, recognize and celebrate healthy success stories.
We Champion Healthy Programs.
We use our resources to spread awareness about all kinds of good-health programs in our community, from free health screenings and educational classes to group activities like walking, running, cycling, paddling and dancing. Health is a serious topic but our approach is supportive and fun.
We Unite Health-minded Organizations.
We are powered by our “founding champions” — the West Orange Healthcare District, Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital and the Observer Media Group — and a growing number of local businesses and organizations for whom a healthy community provides meaningful benefits, from healthier employees to greater quality of life.
We Advocate for Healthy Community Decisions.
A healthy community goes well beyond individual behaviors; it requires access to quality healthcare, strong education and employment opportunities, adequate housing and transportation, safety and support services, and good air and water quality. We drive awareness and encourage local leaders to keep their communities’ health and wellness a top priority.
