TECHE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER IS PROUD TO BE A “WELL SPOT” FOR WELL-AHEAD LOUISIANA.

October 3, 2016

Well-Ahead Louisiana is an initiative started by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) aimed at improving the health and wellness of Louisiana citizens. Well-Ahead Louisiana promotes and recognizes healthy choices in the spaces and places where we live and work every day that make it easier for us all to live healthier, happier lives - from going tobacco-free, to ensuring healthy lunch options or to supporting workplace fitness programs. Well-Ahead promotes voluntary changes towards health in communities throughout the state. This is about Louisiana's people, leaders, businesses and organizations taking action because it is the right - and healthy - thing to do.

A key part of the Well-Ahead Louisiana initiative is recognizing places and organizations that are working to make it easier for Louisiana citizens to live well. Upon meeting certain wellness benchmarks, these environments are designated as “Well Spots.” 

LDH staff works closely with worksites, hospitals, schools, child care centers, colleges/universities and restaurants to help them identify and meet the wellness benchmarks. Once LDH staff verifies an organization has met enough benchmarks, it will be identified as a Well Spot. For more information visit wellaheadla.com
