Baton Rouge Pilots, Programs and Interventions
Clinical-Led Obesity Education and Screening
The Community-Clinical committee is working to assist physician practices in treating obesity. By asking the simple question “Are you comfortable with your weight,” a physician can open the dialogue about obesity, which can lead to addressing ways to reduce weight and improve clinical outcomes.
The Education and Community Resources committee is working with HealthyBR and its digital platform to improve health education for seniors.
Physical Fitness and Healthy Eating
Working with area Federally Qualified Health Centers, the Access to Care committee is focused on improving access to exercise and healthy foods.
