Daughters of Charity Health Center
On Wednesday the official opening of the Daughters of Charity Health Center in Gentilly occurred on campus. After Katrina, the university developed an idea to open a student union that would also house a community health center. The overall concept was to bring health care to the community, and then also have a facility where members of the community could stay healthy.
So after about 5 years this center became a reality. Lots of people worked on it (I really came in at the end trying to close the loop). A key person is Michael Griffin, Dillard alum who is the CEO of Daughters. He was a driving force in this new facility, which is accessible to Dillard students, faculty and staff.
