Congratulations to East Jefferson General Hospital volunteer Patricia Morris who has been named a Peoples Health Champion!
Morris has been a volunteer with the hospital since 2012, logging over 1,200 hours of service time primarily in the Volunteer Services office.
The Peoples Health Champions program recognizes the exceptional achievements of Louisiana residents age 65 and older. Peoples Health, in collaboration with the New Orleans Saints, celebrates seniors in the community who shatter the myth that getting older means slowing down.
Each Peoples Health Champion is honored on the field of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during Saints home games. For her accomplishments, Morris was recognized before the Nov. 27 game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Here is the video played on-screen in the Superdome on Gameday. Her full story can be read on the Peoples Health website here.
