(Lafayette, LA) - Want to adopt a lifestyle that promotes healthy living? Join “the club.”
The Healthy Living Club, a coalition of local nonprofits and city agencies, has launched a web site that touts the various options available throughout the Lafayette area. The site, at thehealthylivingclub.org, highlights services, programs and events, as well as offering simple steps that make a different to the overall well-being of an individual.
“This is a community-first project,” said Dr. Joan Landry with the Picard Center for Child Development and Lifelong Learning at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. “Within our Lafayette neighborhoods, there are so many groups working with a focus on healthy living. Our web site gives people the opportunity to get all that information under one virtual roof.”
The Healthy Living Club includes more than 20 partners who promote activities ranging from renovating and improving local parks, planting community gardens, hosting food trucks and holding dance classes.
The web site presents more than just generic news and notes on healthy living. The public can sign up for an e-newsletter, track the HLC blog or volunteer for specific partner-led events.
A three-year initiative, the Healthy Living Club is made possible by a grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation to the Kiwanis Club of Lafayette Foundation. Picard serves as grant administrators.
