The Coastal Resource and Resiliency Center conducts lay health worker trainings in the coastal parishes and counties of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.

Our primary goal is to improve overall health outcomes in the target area, especially among disadvantaged and under-served populations.

To accomplish this goal, we train lay health workers to encourage healthy lifestyles and improve health literacy, to promote emergency preparedness and disaster recovery, and to help people identify the resources they need to stay healthy and safe.

Our current activities include:

  • The Community Health Worker Training Project, funded by a grant from the Gulf Region Health Outreach Program.
  • Volunteer Peer Health Advocate Training, funded by a grant from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
  • Chronic Disease Management Training, funded by a grant from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
  • The Consortium for Resilient Gulf Communities, funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative.
