Imagine Palm Beach County where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your zip code doesn’t determine your health. From our surrounding rural areas to our urban cores, we are fighting for longer lives by making the places where we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal as healthy as can be.

200,000 people in Palm Beach County live without reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.

Marissa Fattore

Marissa Fattore - Stroke Survivor

Think stroke is something you don’t need to worry about when you’re young? Think again. Marissa Fattore woke up the morning of her college graduation “feeling off.” She chalked it up to graduation nerves and pushed through the day. By the time she was called to the stage to accept her diploma, everything was blurry. Marissa has no memory of what happened after she sat back down. At the age of 21, she’d had a stroke. Nine years later, Marissa is a strong survivor who encourages women to learn the signs of stroke – F.A.S.T.
