An Evening for Heroes 2013 Chairmen
LSU Health Shreveport is an invaluable resource to North Louisiana. For the past two years, we have attended their event, An Evening for Heroes, which honors healthcare professionals and emergency responders. We both have watched and listened with pride and awe how these amazing heroes work together to save lives. It is a touching reminder of what it means to our families and our communities when one precious life is saved – something these heroes do every day.
We are excited to be a part of an event that recognizes these everyday heroes, while raising money to support the trauma services at LSU Health Shreveport. Once again this year, the LSU Health Sciences Foundation will recognize many lifesaving professionals--from 911 operators and EMS responders to nurses, physicians and therapists who helped save the lives of two patients. The evening will feature a new mother’s survival story and a young burn victim who found his voice after a devastating fire. In addition, military heroes will be honored from our own Barksdale Air Force Base.
LSU Health is the largest employer in Shreveport and contributes an impressive one billion dollars annually into our local economy. Support from our community is essential to attracting and retaining world class physicians who are there when we need them. This event is a way to connect you to the teaching, the healing and the discovery that go on in our own backyard.
We hope that you will partner with us this year as we honor and celebrate our quiet heroes. We appreciate your support and invite you to join us Thursday, May 2nd for an inspiring evening.
