Our Lady of the Lake Geaux Get Healthy Clinical Program Now Offering Classes at Picardy Clinic

May 29, 2024

Our Lady of the Lake’s Geaux Get Healthy clinical program now offers classes at Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group Picardy at 8119 Picardy Ave, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The program also offers classes at its original location at Our Lady of the Lake North at 5439 Airline Hwy, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Geaux Get Healthy's south Baton Rouge location was previously housed at Our Lady of the Lake’s clinic on Silverside Avenue. The move to Picardy Avenue provides the community health workers with a larger workspace allowing them to work closely and efficiently.

“The Geaux Get Healthy clinical program is continuously looking for ways to expand and enhance the invaluable resources we help provide to the Baton Rouge community,” said Tiffany Ardoin, MD, director of the Geaux Get Healthy clinical program. “This new space serves as a hub for the program, providing us the opportunities to reach those who need access to food resources.”

Geaux Get Healthy, a project of the Mayor's Healthy City Initiative (HealthyBR), is a coalition of local organizations working collaboratively to make fresh food affordable and accessible, to develop sustainable programs to reduce food insecurity in our community’s highest-needs neighborhoods, and to co-create a thriving local food landscape.

Classes at Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group Picardy are offered on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Additionally, classes at Our Lady of the Lake North are offered on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The program is ongoing, and eligible participants can join at any point. Learn more about the Geaux Get Healthy program, call (225) 678-4278.
