Steps to a Healthier New Orleans
Steps to a Healthier New Orleans (Steps) is part of the Steps to a Healthier US Initiative, a national, multi-level program that is changing the face of chronic disease prevention in communities across the United States.
Through a partnership with LPHI and the City of New Orleans Health Department, the Steps program funds communities to implement chronic disease prevention and health promotion programs that target three major chronic diseases: diabetes, obesity and asthma and their underlying risk factors of physical inactivity, poor nutrition and tobacco use.
The Steps program employs environmental change, social marketing, community outreach and education strategies to achieve its mission. The success of the program is made possible by its community partners.
The Steps program is about improving lives and helping Americans reduce their risk of chronic diseases so that they can live longer, better and healthier.
