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.

Troy Rice

Troy Rice

Heart and Stroke Survivor

At just 7 days old, Troy Rice had major open-heart surgery. He had been born with a congenital heart defect that doctors expected would end his life by age 5, but he’s lived much longer. By age 28, Troy had three more open heart surgeries, and more are inevitable.

Now 41, Troy credits American Heart Association research and advancements for helping save his life from his congenital heart defect. The Rices have been ardent volunteers for more than a decade, especially championing our research. Troy has served on the Palm Beach Heart Walk Cabinet for the past three years and recently chaired the Executive Challenge. His wife Tracy is a member of Circle of Red.
