About the Dr. and Mrs. Roy Gregory Scholarship for Family Medicine
The Dr. and Mrs. Roy Gregory Scholarship for Family Medicine was established in 2018 through a generous endowment from the Gregory family.
Dr. Gregory practiced primary care in Mandeville, LA for 37 years. His two-person practice was the first on the North Shore to join Ochsner Health. It eventually grew into a primary care practice of 14 physicians with three locations including a super clinic in Covington, LA.
Dr. Gregory retired from practice in 1997.
