Greater Southeast Affiliate / Louisiana-American Cancer Society

Last year, we made great strides towards building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Because of your dedication, the Louisiana legislature passed two significant bills. One measure mandates that all newborns be screened for critical congenital heart disease before going home for the first time. The other bill requires each college to develop a smoke free air policy. Your support made this possible. Thank you!

But there is more work to do.  Help us today by inviting your friends and family to joinYou’re the Cure.  

The need for your help is evident. In 2013, Louisiana was named the most obese state in the nation.  In addition, our state maintains the third lowest excise tax on cigarettes. We know that regular exercise, weight management, not smoking and a healthy diet reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  

In 2014, let’s promote policies that impact heart disease and stroke risk factors as well as policies that further protect heart disease or stroke survivors.  In order to be bigger and better this year, we need citizens across the state to join our efforts and become advocates.
Let's help make Louisiana healthier!
