Community Programs: Peoples Health Champions
Peoples Health Champions
People over age 65 accomplish exceptional things all of the time. Not in spite of their age, but because of it. To recognize the exceptional achievement of New Orleans area residents age 65 and older, Peoples Health, in collaboration with the New Orleans Saints, has created the Peoples Health Champions program.
Many senior recognition programs equate advanced age with diminished capacity and commend individuals for overcoming their age. The Peoples Health Champions program breaks this faulty thinking. It recognizes the unique capability of seniors to accomplish things now that they would not have been able to accomplish in their youth.
