CEO of the Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport – St. Mary Medical Center Chris Mangin said, “Lifestyle and physical activity are cornerstones of health and wellness, which start out in the community – not inside a hospital, which is why we are happy to host this 5K and Fun Run for people of all fitness levels and all ages. Holding this event at our St. Mary Medical Center also continues our trend of revitalization in the Highland area, further acting on our commitment to improving the quality of life and wellness for our community.”
