NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Brees Dream Foundation and Ochsner Hospital announced a partnership to raise funds for the Women's Wellness and Survivorship Center located at Ochsner Baptist.

The center is the first of its kind in the region, provides comprehensive, coordinated care using a holistic approach for the unique healthcare needs of women, including those diagnosed with and surviving cancer.

"I found that my patients had questions related to far more than their annual wellness visits," said founder Dr. Elizabeth Lapeyre.
