Health & Wellness

The Health & Wellness initiative will positively impact Southwest Florida communities, enhancing the overall health of residents. Through programs and partnerships with Healthy Lee, physicians’ groups, local schools, social services organizations and our varied neighborhoods, we are taking a proactive, grassroots approach to education and initiating healthy living programs that transform the way our families feel about wellness and healthcare. Our six key focus areas include: Purpose Driven Living “Your Why”, Physical Activity, Nutrition, Sleep, Stress Management, and Mental and Behavioral Health.
