Sonja Lawrence, a patient access service representative at our West Bend Health Center, lost 80 pounds since the beginning of 2016. Her supervisor, Stacey Haas, was inspired by her efforts and nominated her for a lifestyle change award, which Sonja won as part of the American Heart and Stroke Walk on Sept. 18.

“We work for an organization that promotes, recognizes and rewards healthy choices," Stacey said. Sonja, who has worked at Froedtert Health for 19 years, said her weight loss journey began this past January. Since then, she successfully lost 80 pounds, thanks to a number of healthier lifestyle changes."

A team of medical professionals, some of them from Froedtert Hospital, recently traveled to provide aid to refugees in Jordan. The Zaatari camp houses roughly 80,000 refugees forced to flee Syria.

Since Assad’s army specifically targets some attacks to clinics, hospitals and doctors, neurologist Thomas Chelimsky, MD, said the mission carried “a more than minimal risk.” http://ow.ly/70wr3028O4F
