Louisiana Go Local
Louisiana Go Local officially launched on Wednesday, October 28, 2009! This online service lists thousands of services across the state. Users can find doctors, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, support groups, diabetes care, cancer services, home health care, weight management services, and much more.
Governor Bobby Jindal proclaimed October 28, 2009 Go Local Day in Louisiana to recognize the launch of the site. The proclamation notes that ÔÇ£knowing how to locate health services in the community can aid in the prevention of disease and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.ÔÇØ
