We want to know your opinion! Leave your comments in the box below.

I am extremely interested in the content you provided today. I lost my only sibling to multiple myeloma in 1987 and after he died, I became a vegetarian/vegan.
Since then, I’ve followed the Forks over Knives program and found it to be helpful and effective in sustaining my weight loss.
I am very interested in following up with my thoughts and suggestions and possibly volunteering with Dr. Champagne at Pennington, Monica with WIC and Stephanie Elwood with Southern AG.
I recently completed the master gardener program and wish to know how I can help Stephanie with Food Deserts.
I also want to start a program that encourages new food traditions among people in Louisiana that doesn’t emphasize the consumption of meat or seafood and I’d like to promote the elimination of all dairy from the school systems.
I know these sound a bit radical but eating this way has kept me cancer free and healthy for over 30 years.
Please feel free to contact me and forward my contact info to Monica, Stephanie and Dr. Champagne.
Also, I believe exercise is important, but weight loss I’ve found starts and ends with proper food.
Remember not even mountain lions eat meat three times a day.
Please contact me and let me be involved! Thanks and Happy New Year!

     01/18 - Early Education Matters

Should early childhood education be a priority?
It’s estimated that issues with early childhood education cost the state economy more than $1 billion per year. Business professionals and politicians agree that there is a severe lack of access to high-quality child care in the state. But with the state facing a $1 billion budget shortfall, can funds be found to make this a priority?

Louisiana School Finder, a first-of-its-kind performance guide on early care and education centers is a useful tool for parents seeking care for their children. Can it also be a mechanism to improve performance? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Early Education Matters” January 24th at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.

Our panelists are:

· Melanie Bronfin, La. Policy Institute for Children

· Rep. Stephen Carter, R-Baton Rouge; Education Committee

· Stephen Waguespack, La. Assoc. of Business & Industry

· Supt. John White, La. Dept. of Education

Barry Erwin, CEO of the Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL) moderates the discussion.

The program includes interviews with Belinda Creel Davis, Ph.D., with the LSU Reilly Center for Media and Public Affairs and co-author of the Losing Ground study of childcare issues and workforce productivity in Louisiana; Melinda George, Child Care Assistance Manager with the La. Dept. of Education; Brigitte Nieland, V.P. for Workforce and Education for the La. Assoc. of Business & Industry: and Shawanda Jefferson, a mother whose improved employment status has put her Child Care Assistance Program benefits in jeopardy.
