"One of the things my parents taught me was to give back to my community. Giving of one's time and resources is extremely satisfying when you know you are working for a good cause like the Buena Vista Regional Healthcare Foundation," said Jan Worthan, newly appointed member to the Board of Directors of the Buena Vista Regional Healthcare Found-ation.
"Our regional medical center not only saves lives but improves the quality of life for so many area residents and their families. We are very fortunate to have it and I look forward to working with the other board members to help make future improvements happen," she added.
Jan is the Agent for American Family Insurance. She and her husband, Gary, farm north of Storm Lake. They have three sons, Ryan, Gabe and Shannon.
"Jan's commitment to the community is very strong," the board said in a statement.
The Foundation's purpose is to seek and provide financial support for the needs of the patients and families served at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center.
