Moriah Farrell of Lindenhurst recently received the Healthy Lifestyle Change award from the American Heart Association for her efforts to make positive changes to improve her health and quality of life. Farrell, an executive assistant at the Melville-based elder-law firm Genser Dubow Genser & Cona, lost 40 pounds in a six-month span earlier this year by going to a local gym five to six times week and taking classes ranging from zumba to kickboxing. She was also part of a 30-member firm team that raised nearly $5,000 in a three-mile walk to benefit the heart association.
