Healthy State has launched with a singular goal: to improve Louisiana’s ranking among the Top 40 Healthiest States by 2030. In this pursuit, we embrace the challenges and can leverage our strengths as leading healthcare, education, and policy organizations and — once and for all — turn things around for all of us.
Year after year, Louisiana ranks near the bottom in nearly all health measures. That’s in sharp contrast to the incomparable culture, heritage, resilience, and joie de vivre that makes our state one of a kind. Moving the Healthy State vision forward, we are collaborating as a multi-faceted team with varied backgrounds, experiences and resources in order to make Louisiana a healthier place to live, thrive and survive.
Louisiana’s leading organizations across the public and private sectors are taking action to enhance the quality of life for all Louisianians. There’s no better time than right now — let’s work together to optimize the health, safety, and wellness for every single person. Smarter, not harder. For all of us today, and our future generations that follow.
With the guidance of the Healthy State Advisory Board, we believe we can achieve profound impact across the state. We believe in Healthy State, its endeavors, and we believe in the industries and companies from every sector, every corner of the state, to help us tackle the leading causes of poor health. We are working daily to accomplish this mission so that one day, all Louisianians will enjoy a better, longer, healthier way of life.
Our mission is to eliminate barriers to healthcare; bring resources to underserved, urban and rural communities; collaborate with partners to research and better understand health disparities; utilize technology and innovation to improve outcomes and invest in Louisiana’s next generation of healthcare providers and frontline staff.
