Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition
Communities across the state are stepping up to fight tobacco-use and obesity – the biggest causes of death and chronic disease – through healthy policies and improvements to our built environment.

We provide a network that helps unite, train, support, and leverage communities' work through:

  • Statewide leadership and connection
  • Communications support
  • Community grants
  • Hosting an annual summit
