OKEECHOBEE — Okeechobee Healthy Start, a leading organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of families in the community, is delighted to announce the retirement of its esteemed community liaison, Pam Duenas. After an incredible five years of tireless dedication and extraordinary accomplishments, Pam will be stepping down from her position to embark on a new chapter in her life.
