The fourth annual Freeman Regional Health Services Gala was held January 26 at the Freeman Community Center in Freeman. 160 guests enjoyed an evening of great food, a lively auction, and inspirational speaker Holly Hoffman, left, who appeared on the television show Survivor, 2010.
This years' foundation project was to raise funds to purchase a telemetry system for the FRHS Cardiac Rehab Department. Telemetry is a wireless system that allows health care workers to monitor and catch irregularities and potential heart problems.
"With this system, we are preventing future heart attacks and other complications," said Cardiac Rehab Director Beth Preheim, who spoke at the gala.
"Telemetry gives us a chance to catch problems early. What we do in Cardiac Rehab is to push people and push the heart to the limit, but not cause more problems. Telemetry allows us to do exactly that, so telemetry is a vital part of recovery.
