Hall of Fame Goes 'Behind the Walls' with Centurion Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant personal challenges to everyone, especially incarcerated individuals. Beyond the physical threat the virus poses, it also challenges one’s mental health, causing heightened feelings of anxiety, concern and isolation.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame deeply understands this concern because of its relationship with Centurion Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of medical and mental health care for judicially-involved individuals. Last year with Centurion, three Hall of Famers went behind the walls and visited with the residents at two Tennessee state prison facilities to inspire the population to stay motivated to make healthy mental and physical choices.

This year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has teamed with Centurion again to produce a series of short videos addressing perseverance, hope and self-care during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hall of Fame Gold Jackets Aeneas Williams, Darrell Green and Anthony Muñoz, as well as basketball legend Iman McFarland, participated in a series of roundtable discussions with Centurion’s clinical experts. The discussions focused on ways to ease anxiety and give support to residents having a difficult time coping with negative feelings resulting from COVID-19.

The videos were sent to facilities throughout the country to be shown to incarcerated populations in 11 states and viewed by more than 325,000 people.

With the inspiring experiences of these champions framing the guidance of Centurion’s medical professionals, it is our hope that incarcerated individuals will be motivated and inspired to continue persevering through this stage of the pandemic.
