On May 5, for the first time in two years, Sulzbacher advocates gathered in-person at the Casa Marina Hotel in Jacksonville Beach for Sulzbacher’s Fiesta at the Beach, a fundraiser for the Sulzbacher Beaches Health Center. Sulzbacher honored Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, with the “2022 Beaches Healthy Hero” award to recognize the organization’s outstanding commitment to improving the health and well-being of the Beaches community. 

This year Sulzbacher celebrated a very special Healthy Hero, Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. Since the partnership between Sulzbacher and Mayo Clinic began in 2008, the clinic has shared its expertise to help Sulzbacher expand its medical services in meeting the needs of the community, from volunteering its regular presence on Sulzbacher campuses to taking a leadership role and serving on Sulzbacher’s board of directors.

“Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville provides essential help in many of Sulzbacher’s medical programs at our Downtown and Jacksonville Beach health centers. They also regularly provide primary care from the Sulzbacher health mobile, which goes throughout Duval County providing medical care to our homeless neighbors,” said Cindy Funkhouser, Sulzbacher’s president and CEO. “It was very fitting that at our first in-person event in two years, we celebrated a partner who played such an integral role in helping Sulzbacher through these last two difficult years of the pandemic”
