“The Seminole County Unity Committee is comprised of Kashif Vallot, Carl Buford, and myself. We are excited to collaborate with the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County to host the Third Annual Seminole County Day of Unity and Take Your Loved One to the Doctor Day event,” said Pernell Bush, President and CEO of No Limit Health and Education. “Unity is strength. Wonderful things can be achieved with teamwork and collaboration.”

Last year’s event was attended by more than 400 residents and visitors. 

“Take a Loved One to the Doctor is a national campaign encouraging people to take charge of their health and then encourage their loved ones to do the same,” said Dr. Swannie Jett, Health Officer for DOH-Seminole. “This event is a call to action for families and individuals to reclaim their health and continue to make progress toward unity in Seminole County.”
