State health officials Monday promoted 35 WellSpots across Louisiana, including a variety of worksites and restaurants, that have made changes to make it easier for Louisiana residents who want to improve their health.
The state Department of Health and Hospitals also announced the launch of a new website at WellAheadLa.com that makes it easy for users to find WellSpots in their community that push healthy eating, exercise and other activities.
Of the current WellSpots, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge is the first hospital to receive a Level One designation, which is the highest level. Xavier University in New Orleans was the first university to receive the WellSpot designation, followed by the Our Lady of the Lake College.
The full list of WellSpots is searchable on the new website.
