Ochsner Health is a system that delivers health to the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and the Gulf South with a mission to Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is a pillar of what our team does. We provide the best resources for schools and children to reach their full potential!
Education Outreach is committed to developing a well-prepared and informed workforce pipeline for health sciences and positively impacting K-12 education outcomes.
Ochsner Health is here to provide helpful resources for parents, teachers, kids and more! During the COVID-19 pandemic, you are likely to have a lot of questions. Is it safe for my child to return to school? What activities can I do with my child at home to foster development? How can I manage the extra stress my child is feeling during these times?
Our goal is to empower the community to live their strongest, healthiest lives possible by providing easy-to-access real-world education, inspiration and resources on wellness and nutrition.
Ochsner has embarked on an ambitious project to transform the health and wellness of our community, using schools as the focal point of our interactions. Research has proven that many chronic health problems, such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension, are primarily caused by lifestyle choices. In order to reduce chronic disease in our community, we need to change the choices and behaviors of our children and their families through exercise, nutrition and promotion of preventative health behaviors. Change the Kids, Change the Future™ is an overarching philosophy guiding Ochsner’s work in this area. By working to alleviate the cause instead of the symptoms, we can affect meaningful, lasting change the health and wellness of our community.
