Louisiana Healthcare Connections Receives LEAF Award

The Baton Rouge Recreation Commission (BREC) Foundation recently honored Louisiana Healthcare Connections with its 2022 LEAF (Leadership, Excellence, Activism, and Fellowship) Award.

The LEAF Award is presented annually to honor an individual, business, or organization that has had a significant impact on BREC.

“By investing in organizations who share their passion for healthy communities, Louisiana Healthcare Connections is ‘building true connections,” said Bryan Camerlinck, BREC Foundation Board president. “We are thankful for all they have done and their continued efforts to truly make a difference in our community.”

Louisiana Healthcare Connections has supported the “Charting A New Course” fundraising effort as well as holiday campaigns and provided general operating support and summer camp financial assistance. In addition, they provided funding for the Scotlandville Disk Golf course.

As part of the LEAF Award, $1,000 is contributed by the Foundation to a BREC program or project as designated by the recipient. Louisiana Healthcare Connections has chosen BREC’s “Send A Kid to Camp” initiative for this year’s support. 

Chris Adams, BREC Foundation Board member and vice president of Legislative & Government Affairs for Louisiana Healthcare Connections, received the award on behalf of the health plan.

“Community partners like the BREC Foundation play a critical role in supporting our members while helping to create a healthy, vibrant, and thriving quality of life for everyone,” said Adams.
