TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A western Kansas nurse and the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department have been honored for their efforts over the past year to make residents healthier.

The awards were presented Monday during Gov. Sam Brownback's Kansas Obesity Summit in Topeka.

Earning the top individual honor was Lisa Moritz, who serves as the Unified Greeley County health nurse and nurse for the Greeley County school district. Moritz was noted for promoting health and physical wellness through a variety of programs open to students and school personnel.

The Lawrence parks department was cited for having more than 450 programs, including numerous park and outdoor trail activities. The department has also helped residents transform vacant properties into community gardens to provide a local source of fruits and vegetables.
