WPHF Celebrates 20th Anniversary

For the past 20 years, the Winter Park Health Foundation has been dedicated to making Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville the healthiest communities in the nation, and in the process invested more than $85 million to promote and improve health, through a wide variety of grants, programs, outreach, and facilities.

To mark the anniversary, WPHF will kick off a year of special activities and programs beginning with the February 28 Leadership Reunion and VIP Celebration. The reception and dinner will give WPHF trustees old and new—and major community partners—the chance to reflect on work accomplished and take a look at the road ahead.

Fittingly, the anniversary theme is “Inspiring Healthy Communities.”

WPHF will also use the anniversary occasion to introduce a new logo as well as a revamped website (www.wphf.org) designed to inspire and empower visitors to join the foundation in its work to create a healthy community. It will also have a new presence on social media platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest to reach even more readers and viewers.

In addition, beginning in March, the WPHF will launch an e-newsletter about foundation activities to community leaders, stakeholders, partners and anyone interested in keeping up with foundation news. You can sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of our website, www.wphf.org.

And there is more. We’ll be highlighting our 20th anniversary at partner/grantee activities throughout the year, including the upcoming BrainFest 2014 event on March 15 at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic Center in Winter Park and the opening of Healthy Eatonville Place in the first half of this year, as well as at a WPHF-hosted community event later this year.

Also planned during our anniversary year, WPHF will conduct and release results of its fourth Community Health Assessment that includes:

  • Phase one: a regional survey in partnership with Florida Hospital (covering Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties) and the Space Coast Health Foundation (covering Brevard County), and
  • Phase two: a community-level oversampling in partnership with Healthy Central Florida (for Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville).

Stay tuned, and get ready to celebrate with us!
