Living Well in Southeast Louisiana
Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center will be hosting the inaugural Live Well community health event on Saturday, Nov. 16. The new Live Well Bayou event, located in Houma, joins the lineup of Mary Bird Perkins community prevention, education and early detection events taking place throughout Southeast Louisiana. Thanks to the Live Well Bayou presenting sponsor, Cenac Marine Services, you and your whole family can expect to enjoy these five things from this new health event of the season.
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!
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. Cancer screenings will be offered for the duration of the event for free. No insurance is required.
The Warm Up
Root2Rise will be offering an uplifting yoga warmup for all attendees. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say we’re excited about this part of the event.
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.
