“Bill Taddonio has been an asset to the Board not only with his vast professional experience in the medical field, but through his passion for people and all things health and wellness,” said Dave Kraybill, Foundation President. “His dedication and leadership has helped guide the Foundation in fulfilling its mission of motivating people to adopt healthy lifestyles.”

Debbie Zelle joined the Foundation’s Board in March 2014. In her two years on the Board, Debbie has served on the Grants and Marketing & Communications Committees.

“Debbie has been an integral part of the Foundation’s Board, bringing years of experience as a school nurse to the table as well as a love of the community,” Kraybill said. “Her unique insight into the world of health and wellness has been a guiding force as we strive to help the communities we serve make healthier choices.”
