St. Luke's Community Family Health and Fun Festival is a community outreach event which will focus on community health issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease/stroke, cancer, high blood pressure and HIV/AIDS awareness. There will be food, fun and lots of activities for kids and adults. We have found that we live in a city where family; community and health issues have been drastically overlooked. Accordig to the latest statistic by the CDC, more than one-third of U.S. adults (35%) are obese. Also the prevalance of obesity in Louisiana is equal to or greater than 30%.
Through partnership with many local vendors and health organizations, we hope to address these issues in a very informative, and family-friendly environment.
