addressing barriers to health


Recognizing the desire to live a healthy lifestyle can be trumped by issues of hunger and illness, the Winter Park Health Foundation seeks partners to help eliminate these barriers. This might involve supporting food distribution to hungry children or helping seniors understand and access benefits for which they are qualified.
