Bill Gulliford named Beaches Healthy Hero

On May 16, the Sulzbacher Beaches Health Center, a healthcare facility operated in Jacksonville Beach by Sulzbacher, honored Jacksonville City Councilman Bill Gulliford with the 2019 Beaches Healthy Hero Award.
The award was presented as part of Fiesta on the Beach, a fund-raising event on behalf of the Sulzbacher Beaches Health Center.
Created in 2011, the Healthy Hero Award honors and recognizes individuals, organizations or agencies that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to improving the health and well-being of the Beaches community. Through their commitment to the Sulzbacher Beaches Health Center, Beaches Healthy Heroes give of their time, talent and expertise to the staff and patients in need.
“We are so happy to honor our wonderful friend, Councilman Bill Gulliford, as this year’s Beaches Healthy Hero,” said Cindy Funkhouser, president and CEO of Sulzbacher. “Not only has he advocated for healthcare to become a dedicated part of this annual city budget but he took a strong leadership position on our city’s tragic opioid crisis and created a model program that is saving lives daily at the beach and throughout the city."
The Healthy Hero Award presentation was held at Fiesta on the Beach at the Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant.
