Our Programs

We are proud of the programs and partners that our organization has the honor of working with in order to create healthier, more informed communities.  We wanted to share with you a little more about each of those programs so that you can see the differences that they  are making in our state.


EatMoveGrow

EatMoveGrow  is a federally funded grant program that offers a wide variety of engaging programs to children, families, childcare centers, and  schools in rural, underserved communities across Southeast Louisiana. Our primary mission is to close health gaps and create opportunities that promote stronger health environments for children.  


Medicare Education Programs 

Our organization works with Scott Woods to help the members of our community with Medicare questions and plans. The LRHA Medicare Education Program includes Medicare education classes for those new to Medicare as well as individual plan reviews both during Medicare Open Enrollment and year-round.  In order to better serve our members and Medicare Beneficiaries, we also have a Medicare Information Line. Your patients can call this line with questions on Original Medicare, Medicare and Drug Plans, or any other question related to Medicare. Advisers also assist with enrollment into subsidies such as Extra Help, Pharmaceutical Assistance programs, and various Medicare Savings Programs. The Medicare Information Line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and costs your patients nothing. Have your patients call 888-244-6218 for all their Medicare needs. To schedule a Medicare 101 class at your facility, email Scott Woods at medicare@lrha.org.

The LRHA is honored to partner with the Louisiana Bureau of Primary Care and Rural Health to improve the health status of Louisiana residents and underserved areas. With the assistance of the BPRH, we provide educational opportunities for RHCs, CAHs, and FQHCs.
