Your HHRS News 2021 "Jersey-Est" Awards: A 6th-Grader Saved Two Lives, A Woman Saved Her Own

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Jan. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- The deaths of local icons Chris Homeny and Steve Ferrigno have been tough on the New Jersey music scene. But thanks to a winner of a 2021 Your HHRS News "Jersey-Est" award, the year came up at least one funeral short.

Less than three weeks after being the star of a benefit to help with her heart condition expenses, Nancy Tulko was informed that data from her heart monitoring vest pinpointed the day and time her heart would have stopped permanently if she hadn't been wearing it!

"We're saluting Nancy as our Woman Of The Year because she was willing to step up and share her story of occasionally taking off the vest because it would get uncomfortable," explains Adrienne Collier, editor of Your HHRS News, online home of New Jersey health, medical, fitness, and nutrition news and events. "Her doing so could potentially save a lot more lives than her own!"

The Jersey-Est Man Of The Year is nurse practitioner Tarik Khan of the Family Practice And Counseling Network in Philadelphia. He has found a great way to make lemonade out of lemons in this post-pandemic era: instead of allowing the Covid vaccines stocked at his office to expire, he doubles as a visiting nurse and administers them to the most vulnerable elderly and disabled shut-in patients on his way home after his shift ends. "With all the medical and political warfare surrounding Covid, Khan's efforts were shockingly refreshing!" Ms. Collier says.

She continues, "Davon Johnson is this year's Honorary Jersey Guy because he successfully used the Heimlich Maneuver on a choking victim at his school AND helped a disabled person out of a burning house. He did both on the SAME day -- and did I mention that he's only eleven?"
