Heart disease and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of Americans, remain largely preventable. That is why the American Heart Association established the Lifestyle Change Award, to recognize those who have made positive changes to improve their quality of life and made a commitment to be Healthy For Good.

The Lifestyle Change Award is presented annually to deserving individuals in our community. Whether they have started exercising regularly, added more fruits and vegetables to their diet, lost weight, quit smoking, improved their cholesterol or blood pressure, or inspired others to make positive changes – no change is too small to be recognized.

The American Heart Association and GE Healthcare want to recognize those in our community who have made changes over the past year. The recipient is chosen to inspire others to take a step and make a commitment to improving their health. 

Do you know someone – a coworker, friend or family member – whose health has improved as a result of making a lifestyle change?

If you do, please share their story and what they did to improve their way of living. How has this impacted their health and how have they stayed on track doing it? Did they inspire you or others?
