Mayor-President Melvin L. “Kip” Holden has made the health of City-Parish employees a top priority throughout his administration. The City-Parish partners with Healthy Lives, offered by Our Lady of the Lake, to improve employees' health and well-being by getting employees and their families involved in their own healthcare management through innovative programs designed to inspire and change behavior.
The Mayor's Healthy City Initiative/Healthy BR is proud to support Healthy Lives in offering the following FREE services to our employees:
- Health risk assessment and screenings
- Individualized Health Coaching
- Access to health classes and programs
- Online Health Services
Each year, the City-Parish hosts a health fair for employees with free screenings, flu shots and more. With Mayor Holden making this a priority and giving employees two hours to attend, 2015 broke attendance and screening records for the third year in a row.
