Support the Keith A. Collins, MD Memorial Scholarship

Keith CollinsBeloved pediatrician Keith Andrew Collins died on Saturday, August 29, 2015, at the age of 45, after a 3 1/2 month battle with cholangiocarcinoma.  Keith was a graduate of LSU School of Medicine - New Orleans Class of 2000 and the recipient of the prestigious Chancellor’s Award for integrity, character, and service.  He completed his pediatric residency at LSU and Children’s Hospital. 

Keith was a well respected and beloved member of the medical community as well as a doting husband and father of six and active member of his church and community.  He established Collins Pediatrics in 2005, caring for many children in the Metairie area and growing that practice to include a recently opened second location in Lakeview.  As such, he was recognized as a New Orleans Magazine Top Doctor and voted by Nola Baby and Family readers as Best Pediatrician. 

Keith was very involved in community service, serving as a member of the East Jefferson General Hospital Board of Directors, past president and active member of St. Catherine of Siena Men’s Club, and member of several carnival krewes.  Keith is survived by his wife, Jennifer Babin Collins, and their six children, Caroline, Andrew, Julianne, Analiese, Christian, and Kyle.

Classmates and colleagues from the Class of 2000  have established an endowed scholarship in his memory, the Keith A. Collins, MD  (’00)  Memorial Scholarship.  All members of the LSU Medicine family are invited to donate to this worthy cause.
