TERRE HAUTE — The work of health care providers, public safety workers and community leaders who have given above and beyond care to Hoosier children was celebrated at the 2nd Annual Health Care Heroes Breakfast on May 22 at Ruth Lilly Education Center.

The 2013 Health Care Hero Award winners include Kenneth Musall, of South Vermillion High School.

He was presented an award for Community Leadership and Advocacy for his years of educating children in swimming training. Musall has selflessly devoted himself to teaching others how to save drowning victims.

Elizabeth Weinstein, program director for Indiana Emergency Medical Services, said, “Hoosiers may not always realize the extraordinary things that their neighbors are doing every day to keep the children of Indiana safe and healthy. We are honored to have the opportunity to thank them and celebrate their successes in a public way.”

The award recipients, along with all health care providers, public safety workers and community leaders, work closely with EMSC to achieve their goals in reducing pediatric morbidity and mortality, providing support and educational opportunities for pre-hospital and health care providers; and they work to represent the unique needs of children within the Emergency Medical Services community.
