Here is what we have learned so far...
A healthy, well-educated community with access to best-in-class medical care is rarely researched. This is what makes Lake Nona unique.
As a smart and connected community, Lake Nona is home today to over 15,000 residents, with more than 2,500 under informed consent and serving as Citizen Scientists.
With over 1,200 surveys completed to date, here are some initial findings:
46% Report having stress in their life
41% Take prescribed medication every day
35% Sleep less than 6 hours a day
33% Do not have a regular doctor
24% Experience uncontrollable worry or anxiety
What we are finding here is important – in a community where people have the financial means and access to healthcare, they are struggling from similar issues as other demographics.
And we’re doing things about this – We’re building a community for the future, focused on the physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing of its residents.
