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!
Anne

     04/18 - Balancing Eldercare

How much does Louisiana spend on nursing homes versus home and community-based care?
Nationally, there is a shift towards providing care for the elderly at home and through community-based services rather than at institutions. But analysts say that Louisiana has a bias towards nursing home enrollment both in policies and funding. A series of bills being proposed this legislative session would address what some consider an imbalance in how the state supports care for its aged population.

So, how much does Louisiana spend on nursing homes versus home and community-based care? Is the demand for institutional care rising or on the decline? And what options are available to provide the funding and the care that the state’s older residents desire? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Balancing Eldercare” Wednesday, April 25 at 7 pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, April 24.)

Our panelists are
· Jeanne Abadie, The Advocacy Center
· Mark Berger, Louisiana Nursing Home Association
· Hugh Eley, Former Deputy Sec. of Louisiana Dept. of Health
· Senator Jay Luneau, D-Alexandria

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana president, Robert Travis Scott, moderate the discussion.
