Emmaus Man’s Story About Taking Charge of His Life to Highlight LVHN’s 2014 Community Annual Meeting
Jonathan Zsigovits of Emmaus once weighed 330 pounds. He struggled with sleep apnea, achy joints, high blood pressure and even bronchitis and pneumonia as a result of his obesity. Following weight loss surgery at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), Zsigovits lost more than 150 pounds and took control of his life to the point where he runs, bikes and is starting to swim with the hope of someday participating in a triathlon.
Zsigovits’s story will be featured during LVHN’s 2014 community annual meeting where he’ll be introduced by Brian Nester, DO, MBA, the health network’s president and chief executive officer (CEO). During the meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 3 at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest auditorium, Nester offered Zsigovits’s story as he addressed members of LVHN’s Board of Trustees, physicians, nurses, staff and community members to highlight the past year, provide a glimpse of the future and stress the importance of taking charge of your health, especially in the new era of health care reform.
