Who We Are
Our Bold Vision
Historically, Louisiana has struggled to improve its outcomes in education, incarceration, and health. In fact, even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our state frequently ranked between 49th and 50th in annual state health outcomes. In direct response to these startling statistics, LCHE and partners launched #LA40by2030, a collaborative effort to improve Louisiana’s health ranking to 40th by the year 2030.

The Louisiana Center for Health Equity’s Board of Directors is comprised of 3 to 13 members. Each board member serves a two-year term which is renewable. As a public charity nonprofit organization, the members of the Board of Directors serve in a voluntary capacity.
Underlying every equitable system are strong, clear policies that afford all individuals the tools they need to lead healthy, productive lives. At LCHE, one of our core strategies for improving health outcomes is policy advocacy through direct actions, campaigns, legislative testimony and policy recommendations.
