A Weekend to Remember: Healthcare Heroes Share Experience Attending Super Bowl LV

As healthcare workers continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, four well-deserving Atrium Health teammates were recognized for their service and sacrifice with a trip to Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Fla. Read more to follow their journey to the Sunshine State!

After a long, strenuous year working on the front lines amid the COVID-19 pandemic, four Atrium Health teammates were recognized for their efforts with a trip to the Sunshine State to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV! With the intent of honoring a select few who have dedicated themselves to their work in healthcare and have received both doses of their COVID-19 vaccinations, the recognition was made possible by our partnership with the Carolina Panthers.

And, on Friday, February 5, these deserving teammates packed their bags with their best Atrium Health and Panthers gear (still wanting to represent our favorite NFL team, no matter who is playing!), and flew down to Tampa, Florida, for a weekend full of COVID-Safe Super Bowl fun! While they were soaking up the warm, sunny weather, we asked them to document their experience. Take a look at the coverage below to meet our four healthcare heroes, and to see what the weekend had in store for them!:

A Weekend to Remember

From Charlotte to Tampa, take a trip down memory lane with us as we reflect on the weekend of fun!


As part of his new foundation, the Christian McCaffrey Foundation, Panthers running back, McCaffrey aims to address pressing needs and honor those who serve our community most critically, including frontline healthcare heroes and law enforcement officials. In the week leading up to this year's Super Bowl, Christian joined a surprise Zoom call with our healthcare hero, Jennifer, and Sarah Garrison, MHA, Senior Manager, Sports Marketing & Corporate Events at Atrium Health, to surprise Jennifer with some special cleats as a token of his appreciation for all of her hard work! How cool is that?!
