Who will lead the charge to improve the state of health for Louisiana by 2030? Ochsner Health will.
Ochsner Health is committed to building a healthier region to live and thrive in. This initiative is our commitment to improve the overall health of the state. Healthy State by 2030 is driven by a comprehensive strategy to enhance healthcare access, improve health equity and health outcomes.
Our vision is bold: Louisiana will be ranked in the top 40 by 2030.
Louisiana has consistently ranked at or near the bottom of the country for nearly a decade, placing 49th in 2020 by America’s Health Rankings.
The challenges facing our state include a high percentage of children in poverty, smokers, obesity, low birth weights, higher rates of cardiovascular death and cancer deaths as well as the country’s highest rates of chronic conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure and COPD.
It’s time to educate ourselves, eat better, exercise more, and fight relentlessly for our health to end the burden of preventative and chronic disease in our community.
A step from you. A leap from us. Let’s move forward together.
Ochsner Health and Xavier University of Louisiana combine resources to improve the health of our communities, reducing health inequities, developing healthcare delivery models and modeling equitable care.
This program will cover medical school tuition for medical students who choose to practice psychiatry or primary care in Louisiana with Ochsner.
