Healthy New Year!, Prescription for Health with Dr. Rani Whitfield, LA Veterans Coming Home – Bastion Community

Healthy New Year! January heralds the beginning of a New Year and for many, a resolution to practice a healthier lifestyle. If you live in the Bayou State, that can be a challenge. According to the 13th annual State of Obesity Report, Louisiana now has the highest rate of adult obesity in the country. So, what is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture? Louisiana Public Square dives into healthy eating and more on “Healthy New Year!” airing Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm on LPB-HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. SHARE

Prescription for Health with Dr. Rani Whitfield This month we tackle the rising costs of insulin. The price of insulin has more than tripled in ten years. It is an increasing challenge particularly for those who are uninsured or underinsured and those who need large daily doses. Nearly 14% of Louisiana’s adult population has diabetes. Dr. Rani Whitfield is in the studio to discuss the what’s led to this situation and what can be done about it. SHARE

LA Veterans Coming Home – Bastion Community There is a non-profit organization that is building a neighborhood for returning veterans with lifelong rehabilitative needs. The Bastion Community of Resilience is a five acre site in New Orleans that is designed to serve veterans, their families and the community members who volunteer there. Bastion Executive Director of Dylan Tete is in the studio to explain how this new concept is designed to serve veterans who are at the greatest risk of falling through the gap of existing care. LPB is among 20 television public television stations across the country highlighting issues our nation’s servicemen and veterans face with the Veterans Coming Home initiative. Continued local support for Veterans Coming Home is provided by Entergy. See more stories at veterans.lpb.org. SHARE
