Baton Rouge's initiative to promote healthy eating and active living across our city. The U.S. Conference of Mayors launched The Mayors' Healthy Cities Initiative in response to America's growing obesity problem and its relationship to chronic diseases which may be prevented or lessened through regular exercise and healthy eating. I was eager for Baton Rouge to participate in this effort by promoting both the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the helpful resources available to you in our community.
website, you will find information, links and events coordinated
and planned by our city's leading advocates of health, nutrition and fitness who are
working with me to make Baton Rouge a healthier
I hope you will take a minute to learn more about how you and your family can easily lead a more healthy lifestyle and enjoy good health throughout your lives. Watch for the Healthy BR seal in our community for information, programs and activities aimed at making Baton Rouge a healthy city.
Wishing you good health,
