About the Eye Bank

Ginger Miller, RN, CEBT

Ginger Miller served as Executive Director of the Baton Rouge Regional Eye Bank for more than 30 years and is a graduate of Our Lady of the Lake Nursing College with years of clinical experience in various disciplines of healthcare. 

Ginger received certification as an Eye Bank Technician (CEBT) in 1985 by the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA). She has served on the following EBAA committees:  Chairman of Exam for 6 years, CERT Board for 4 years, Accreditation for 6 years, EBAA Secretary for 4 years, Technical Education for 6 years and past President and Secretary of South Central Region for 6 years.  She received the prestigious Leonard Heise Award in 2001, an award for outstanding dedication, unswerving loyalty and leadership to the Eye Banking community.  

During Ginger’s tenure she coordinated activities with the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) in public education and hospital in-services to facilitate organ and tissue donation.  She served on LOPA’s Advisory Board for 7 years.

Internationally, Ginger has worked tirelessly to educate the citizens of Honduras and Guatemala about the gift of sight.  She coordinated a ten-man team for a medical mission trip to Honduras in 1992.  Again in 1994 she accompanied an eleven-man team for a medical mission trip to Guatemala.  As a result, these very successful missions established viable eye donor programs that continue to serve the people of their countries.

In 2001- 2002, Ginger guided the Eye Bank as it transitioned from sponsorship of Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center to an independent status.  The Eye Bank was renamed the Baton Rouge Regional Eye Bank and has enjoyed accelerated growth and recognition. Eye Bank service has remained steadfast due to Ginger’s dedication to excellence.  

When given the opportunity to promote this valuable program in the Baton Rouge community, Ginger’s enthusiasm and commitment are always evident as she puts her dedication to work serving the Eye Bank.
