The oldest African-American incorporated town in America just achieved a brand-new designation. The town of Eatonville, Florida, was awarded the Culture of Health Prize by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation's largest philanthropy dedicated to improving health and wellness.
Growing Bolder was there for the special announcement. Hear from city and community leaders, as well as RWJF President Dr. Richard Besser, about this extraordinary honor for “the town that freedom built” and learn how its success in overcoming a town-wide diabetes crisis can be a model for other communities around the nation. Congratulations to Eatonville and the other three communities awarded the prestigious Culture of Health prize!
