Louisiana Is Almost Last When It Comes To Health.

We’re Changing That.

Death, in the modern age, is mostly caused by two factors: Tobacco and Obesity.

If you look at why people die now, you’ll see it’s from illnesses that develop over many years, or what is known as “chronic disease.” And, shockingly, we are doing this to ourselves, as most chronic disease results from our own bad habits, pushed and prodded by people and industries who make money off of those habits.

Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition
How to Best Improve Health

Our Regions

The Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition (LHCC) is working across all nine regions to lift the state's almost dead last (49th) ranking. Together, we save lives, help people live disease-free, reduce insurance and taxpayer costs, and create a more productive workforce.

Together, we decide for ourselves how to best improve health, region by region. With a focus on tobacco and obesity, and some state help with data, organizational planning and proven methods, we are creating change. Join us!
