The Mission of Healthier Jupiter
Healthier Jupiter, in partnership with Jupiter Medical Center is dedicated to bringing the greater Jupiter community together to encourage each person to live their healthiest life. Healthier Jupiter is part of the Palm Health Foundation’s Healthier Together Initiative, a long-term, community-driven approach to solving a community’s complex healthcare issues.
The greater Jupiter community works together, supporting each person to live the healthiest life possible.
This initiative’s project goals include:
Promote and ensure opportunities for healthy eating and active living
Encourage people to engage mentally and physically in healthy behaviors
Convene and collaborate with individuals and organizations across multiple sectors
Advocate for sustainable policy changes to improve health
Provide resources and education on chronic disease risks and prevention
Address the social, economic and environmental factors impacting health
Healthier Jupiter provides awareness of chronic disease risk factors to those in the greater Jupiter community. We seek to reach all those who are at risk of developing a chronic condition by promoting lifestyles that are conducive to healthier living.
Healthier Jupiter improves access to wellness education, medical care, services and supplies. We systematically identify, remove and reduce barriers to access, starting with increased opportunities for care for those with limited financial resources and insurance.
Healthier Jupiter strives to be inclusive in every aspect of the initiative and to involve all those who live, work or learn in the greater Jupiter area, regardless of their age, gender, socioeconomic status, national origin, race or religion.
