ENCORE: January - Healthy New Year!

take a brief and confidential survey on this month’s topic

January heralds the beginning of a New Year and for many, a resolution to practice a healthier lifestyle. According to the 2020 State of Obesity report, Louisiana ranks ninth in the country for adult obesity.

So, what is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture? Which diet is the most effective for losing weight? What weight loss surgeries are available and how safe are they? And what role does exercise play in the health equation?

Louisiana Public Square searches for answers on an encore presentation of “Healthy New Year!” Wednesday, January 27 at 7pm on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE.

Our panelists are:

  • Drake Bellanger, M.D., Weight Loss Surgical Centers of Louisiana
  • Catherine Champagne, Ph.D. , Pennington Biomedical Research Center
  • Stephanie Elwood, Southern University AgCenter
  • Rudy Macklin, Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and family physician and author, Dr. Rani Whitfield, moderate the discussion. Visit http://svy.mk/2iVZa8H to take a brief and confidential survey on this month’s topic.

Louisiana Public Square can also be heard on public radio stations WRKF in Baton Rouge; Red River Radio in Shreveport and Alexandria; and WWNO in New Orleans. Check their station websites for schedule.
