Eat Fit NOLA Dine Out

Ochsner Health System has collaborated with local restaurants in the New Orleans area to create Eat Fit NOLA. Eat Fit NOLA is a partnership that strives to make eating out with nutrition in mind easier by highlighting the better-for-you items right on the menu. On Dine Out nights, participating restaurants donate a percentage of their sales for the day to donate to Ochsner's Eat Fit | Live Fit Fund.

From Ochsner with Love

Louisiana isn’t short on heart and soul but, sadly, has some of the highest rates of heart disease in the country. As the leading cause of death for both men and women, cardiovascular issues impact nearly every family. Through awareness, education, and the work of our outstanding caregivers, we are saving and changing lives one heartbeat at a time. The John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute approaches cardiology using a multidisciplinary approach to offer each patient a personalized treatment program that suits their needs best.

The “From Ochsner with Love” campaign was designed to highlight the outstanding care provided by the Ochsner Cardiology team while raising funds and awareness for heart health. Together, we can create a stronger, healthier tomorrow. To learn more about From Ochsner with Love, please click here.
