Holly Warth Receives B’nai B’rith Award from National Safety Council
Holly Warth, BSN, RN has received the 2012 B’nai B’rith award from the Nebraska division of the National Safety Council. Warth, Manager of the Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab Department at Columbus Community Hospital, was recognized for her commitment and volunteer efforts in service to community safety.
She received the award on May 17th at the annual Safety and Health Summit luncheon in La Vista, Nebraska.
Warth was nominated for the countless hours she has spent volunteering her talents as a developer, teacher and demonstrator to thousands of people in the community regarding older adult fall prevention. She has also been an advocate and educator for all aspects of driving safely, including efforts in child passenger safety and seatbelt usage.
Warth started tai chi classes for senior citizens at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney and hopes to adopt a tai chi program at CCH. The program has shown that seniors who practiced tai chi reduced their risk of falling by 47 to 51 percent.
The B’nai B’rith award is a recognition given to an individual through the Nebraska Safe Community Champions program. The Champions program recognizes individuals, businesses, public servants, schools and non-profit organizations that have developed programs encouraging safety and safety leadership.
