Lafayette, LA – Lafayette Consolidated Government, Ochsner Lafayette General, Our Lady of Lourdes, and United Way of Acadiana have partnered together to present the United in Health Breakfast Expert Panel. The event will take place on Friday, August 18 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the Heymann Performing Arts Center.

Mayor-President Josh Guillory will unveil his Health Equity Task Force, an initiative he started in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, whose mission was to achieve the highest quality of healthcare for all residents of Lafayette Parish. The event will feature a panel of health experts who will discuss the progress being made to address health disparities and achieve health equity for all members of the community.

“The promotion of health equity is a critical issue we need to address, as it impacts every member of our community,” said Guillory. “Through this event, we are bringing together leaders in the healthcare industry to discuss our progress and exchange ideas that will positively impact our community.”

The United in Health Expert Panel is open to the public and is a great opportunity to learn about important topics related to their health and well-being. This event is part of an ongoing series of initiatives aimed at addressing health disparities and healthier communities in Acadiana.
