Tyrene "Ty" Benjamin, an exercise physiologist at St. Thomas Hospital's Wellness Center, is the October "Heart for Healing" recipient. A family nominated Ty, because her caring attitude made a positive change in the life of a local resident. Family members told WGNS that this person had poor self-esteem and was overweight.
After that person's physician cleared the person for a fitness program, Ty set-up a program that was synced to their abilities. After a short time, the family notice a definite increase in energy and a dramatic attitude improvement.
Bart talks with Ty Benjamin about the help she is offering people in this community through the Wellness Center at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital.
