Brown & Toland Physicians Recognizes 'Heart Champion'

SAN FRANCISCO, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Brown & Toland Physicians and the American Heart Association (AHA) are proud to award Lisa Marie Harrison of San Ramon the inaugural Heart Champion Award. This honor is given to a Bay Area woman who has made dramatic improvements to her health through diet and exercise.

Harrison at one time weighed 235 pounds and smoked heavily. After a heart attack scare, she turned her life around. Now the 46-year-old counts herself as a smoke-free Jazzercise aficionado who is 75 pounds lighter. Recently, she rediscovered her love of running and competed in a half-marathon.

"We're proud to be honoring her amazing achievements," said Kelly Adler Schueler, RN, an Associate Vice President at Brown & Toland Physicians. "Lisa is a great example for every woman who wants to make positive changes to her lifestyle in the name of health."

Brown & Toland presented Harrison with the award at the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Luncheon on May 1 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. The event benefited the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign, a movement to raise awareness about heart disease in women. Heart disease is the No.1 killer of women in the United States.
