What is a Peoples Health Champion?
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. People over age 65 accomplish exceptional things all the time … not in spite of their age … but because of it.
Each Peoples Health Champion is honored on the field of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during Saints home games.
In essence, a Peoples Health Champion is someone who proves the adage, “We become better with age.”
A Champion may even be you. Nominate yourself or someone you know—like a relative, co-worker or neighbor—as a Peoples Health Champion.
A Peoples Health Champion is someone who:
- Used his or her life experiences to perform an amazing achievement after the age of 65.
- Is a current resident of Louisiana.
