Health care professionals from across Acadiana are taking home new ideas on how to work together to improve wellness in communities.

The Acadiana Culture of Health Summit was held at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette where three Acadiana organizations teamed up with the Louisiana Action Coalition to share the most current tactics to keep the community healthy.

“We’re really not advocating for big wholesale changes. We’re not asking people to give up their gumbo, their bread pudding and things like that. We really want just small, impactful changes that can make a big difference in both personal health and the health of the community,” said Dr. Holly Howat, executive director of Beacon Community Connections.
