5 Things You Should Know About Living Well in the Bayou

Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center will be hosting a Live Well community health event series in Houma this fall. This new Live Well Bayou takes its place this fall with events in Livingston Parish and the Northshore. Thanks to our presenting sponsor Cenac Marine Services, you and your whole family can expect to enjoy these 6 things from this new health event of the season.


The Details

Live Well Bayou will take place on Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Courthouse Square in the heart of Houma. Don’t forget to mark your calendars and clear your schedule!


The Screenings

Thanks to event sponsor Cenac Marine Services, guests have the opportunity to be screened for breast, colorectal, oral, prostate and skin cancers in addition to blood pressure and glucose checks. The cancer screenings will be offered for the duration of the event for free. No insurance is required.


The Warm Up

Root2Rise will be offering a peaceful yoga warmup for all attendees. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say we’re excited about this part of the event.


Tasty Food

It isn’t a Louisiana event without food! Local eateries will be offering tastings of their favorite dishes, so plan to come hungry.


Lots of Children’s Activities

Bayou Country Children’s Museum will be leading activities for the kids who are attending the event.
