Do you know someone whose health has greatly improved as a result of making long-term healthy lifestyle changes? Have you lost a lot of weight in the past year, started living healthier or know someone who has? The American Heart Association invites you to nominate yourself or a healthy friend for the LCA Marshall SterlingLifestyle Change Award.

The Putnam County Region of the American Heart Association is accepting nominations for their Lifestyle Change Award, sponsored locally by Marshall & Sterling. The award honors individuals who have made positive changes to improve their quality of life and overall health.

Ideal candidates are people who have taken control of their health in areas of diet, exercise or tobacco cessation and seen positive results in weight, BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol or blood sugar. Winners will be recognized at the association’s Heart Walk on April 23rd at Brewster High School.
