AdventHealth Honors 100-Year-Old Veteran with Wellness Center Membership

Roy Caldwood’s dedication to health and wellness serves as an inspiration to others.

In recognition of his dedication to health and wellness, Roy Caldwood, a retired World War II U.S. Army Buffalo Soldier, recently received an honorary membership to the AdventHealth Wellness Center Wesley Chapel. Said Erik Wangsness, president/CEO of AdventHealth Wesley Chapel, “His dedication to health and wellness as a centenarian is an inspiration to us all. We are grateful for his service to our country and are proud to be able to help him achieve his fitness goals.”

Caldwood’s most recent fitness journey began last summer after his wife’s passing. Caldwood’s daughter suggested he join the wellness center, and he’s been working out regularly since.
