About the Program

champions-trophyThe Peoples Health Champions Program

To recognize the exceptional achievements of Louisiana 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 challenges this faulty way of thinking. It recognizes the unique capability of seniors to accomplish things now that they would not have been able to accomplish in their youth.

In essence, a Peoples Health Champion is someone who proves the adage, “We become better with age.”
