Join us to celebrate the great strides that have been made in the health of our community as Mayor Eddie Cole proclaims June 7 “Healthy Eatonville Day”! Our health journey began in 2012 when research showed that 24% of Eatonville residents had diabetes – and nearly 40% had high blood pressure.

Eatonville residents responded in many positive ways including advocating for the development of a health and wellness center. With support from the Town of Eatonville and funding from our friends, The Winter Park Health Foundation, Florida Hospital and Healthy Central Florida, Healthy Eatonville Place was born.

Fun Facts:

Since Healthy Eatonville Place opened, they’ve identified 88 participants with prediabetes and have helped all but one from becoming diabetic. They’ve also helped individuals lose up to 58 lbs in 12 months and helped 80% of people with uncontrolled hypertension to reduce their blood pressure.

Comprehensive health has become a high priority for the entire town. We’re addressing social determinants of health: Education, Employment, Healthy Food Access and Housing to manage and improve health. Through the efforts of many, the path to better health is being paved. Some of these partnerships include Valencia Community College, Hostdime, Orange County Public Schools, Hebni Nutrition, Florida Hospital and others.

Residents continue to take matters into their own hands by increasing access to fresh produce through their own yards and gardens. While strolling through beautiful Eatonville, you’ll quickly notice the array of edible gardens and our own community garden which provides free produce to residents.

Our residents are on the move together to create a healthier Eatonville!
