Our Programs & Partnerships

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.  

LRHA is proud to partner with the All of Us Research Program of the National Institute of Health (NIH).  All of Us is seeking to enroll one million people of diverse experiences and backgrounds from across the United States in the hopes of advancing medical research.  People who join share information about their health, habits, and environment to provide a diverse and representative data pool for researchers to learn more about the factors that impact health.  LRHA works in collaboration with All of Us, the National Rural Health Association,  and other partners to increase awareness of the Program and increase Louisiana rural resident enrollment in the program.

Delta Regional Rural Health Workforce Training Program

LRHA is proud to partner with the Louisiana Primary Care Association to support the Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program.  The purpose of this program is to education and train future and current health professional in rural parishes in medical coding and billing, claims processing, information management, and clinical documentation.


EatMoveGrow is a federally funded grant program that offers a wide variety of engaging programs to children, families, community organizations, 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. EMG is currently promoting a pilot program to create a partnership between rural health clinics and elementary school in rural parishes to increase resources and information sharing to both the schools and their families. The program is also partnering with Louisiana’s Office of Public Health’s Community HealthWays program to offer families assistance through their community health worker program. The EMG program is hoping to increase the awareness of resources within these rural communities by offering information to the schools and their families. To learn more about the EatMoveGrow program, you can visit them at www.eatmovegrow.us

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.
