Dr.Steven Nelson Named Spirit of Charity Award Recipient
Our very own Dr. Steve Nelson, Dean of Medicine, has been chosen as this year’s Spirit of Charity Award recipient. In 1998, the Spirit of Charity Foundation, dedicated to continuing the mission and legacy of Charity Hospital, created “The Spirit of Charity Award.” Each year, it is presented to a physician whose career began or was nurtured in Charity Hospital and who has made a significant contribution to medicine. A member of LSU Health New Orleans’ faculty since 1984, Dr. Nelson has made enormous contributions to medicine over the years -- shaping generations of physicians through undergraduate and graduate medical education, conducting biosciences research on some of society’s toughest health issues, taking care of patients, and serving the community through outreach programs. He is a worthy recipient of this award. Congratulations, Dr. Nelson!
