Opelousas General Health System and the OGHS Foundation’s goal is to improve the overall health of our community. The walking trail project was developed through the collaboration of the OGHS Foundation’s alliance, Healthy St. Landry, the City of Opelousas, and State Representative Dustin Miller.
Since Healthy St. Landry’s inception in 2018, members of the alliance, including partners that provide services and resources for St. Landry Parish, have worked collectively to improve our community’s health outcomes by addressing social determinants of health and developing a comprehensive approach to improving the community’s health. Eighty percent of these outcomes are driven by activities outside the traditional healthcare delivery system and include factors such as education, poverty, obesity, mental health support, unemployment, access to health care, violence in the home, nutrition and other factors.
“The construction of this walking trail brings Healthy St. Landry one step closer to fulfilling our mission of improving overall health. Our hope is that individuals and families will utilize this resource to enhance both their physical and mental health,” said Tracey Antee, OGHS Foundation Director.
