The Mayor’s Healthy City Initiative (MHCI) was founded by Mayor Holden with the purpose of identifying and coordinating efforts aimed at healthy living and an active lifestyle into a unifying commitment to better health. The initiative strives to build community capacity around the issues of population health, particularly our four priorities: childhood obesity, HIV/AIDS, mental health, and ER utilization. Our over 60 partner organizations are organized into three advisory boards. Healthy BR focuses on the issue of childhood obesity and includes partners focused on wellness, prevention, and food access such as the local parks, YMCA, farmers markets, the Redevelopment Authority, and the BR Food Bank. Med BR encompasses the clinical and treatment arm while the third advisory board, the Health Innovation Center, is the research arm. As we have over 60 partner organizations, there are numerous projects that fall under each of our four main priorities.
In the last year, we have experienced massive successes in our obesity priority. In the spring of 2012, a new health and wellness curriculum (5-2-1-0+10) based on research from the NIH and CDC, and infused with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, was piloted in four area elementary schools. Our testing indicated a total knowledge gain of 26% and a behavior change of 15%. Building on that success, we diversified and refined the curriculum for use in area summer camps run by the city and the YMCA. This fall, the curriculum will be instituted at every parish elementary school by the physical education teacher and the school nurse. Our vision is to make the messaging campaign ubiquitous throughout the city and it is currently in the major area hospitals, clinics, and wellness centers in addition to the schools and parks. In tandem with this new messaging, participation in the Healthy BR Restaurant program where participating restaurants, in return for technical assistance from local dieticians and nutritionists, craft healthy and nutritious kids’ menus, has more than doubled.
In the last year, we were also awarded a grant by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Louisiana Foundation and have sponsored five sub-grantees under the Fresh Beginnings program. Two of our sub-grantees, the Evlyn J. Daniel Foundation and Project Fit America, work in local elementary schools to increase the time and effectiveness of physical activity during the school day. BREADA operates a mobile farmers market that takes fresh produce to food deserts in north Baton Rouge. The market currently makes 3 stops per week with plans to increase to 4 by late September. Together Baton Rouge, a faith-based coalition, is chairing the city’s Food Access Policy Commission, studying our areas of poor access, national best practices, and making policy recommendations to the Metropolitan Council. Finally, the Redevelopment Authority is funding the Healthy Corner Store Initiative to put healthier options and more produce into corner stores in areas with low access through renovations and marketing.

In February 2011, the City of New Orleans joined First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign and committed to ending childhood obesity in one generation. With funding and support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center to Prevent Childhood Obesity and the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement, we convened key partners to help us develop a blueprint to achieve this goal.
The Fit NOLA Partnership has brought over 100 organizations together to imagine a fit city for everyone. Through the participation of partner members and guidance from national leaders, the Partnership made recommendations on policy and environmental strategies that make healthy nutrition and physical activity options easier for all New Orleanians. Fit NOLA’s Action [LP1] Blueprint is a road map for everyone who lives, learns, works and plays in New Orleans to collaborate and take action to improve the nutritional and physical fitness of our community. The overarching strategies include the following:
- Implement a Fit NOLA communications campaign to spread awareness
- Link families and community members to local nutrition and fitness resources
- Empower youth to successfully advocate for policies encouraging fitness and health
- Create safer environments for everyone in New Orleans to be physically active
- Increase program opportunities for children and families to be physically active
- Improve access to affordable, nutritious food
- Expand training opportunities to improve the availability of quality physical activity opportunities
- Create and infrastructure capable of sustaining the Fit NOLA partnership
- Develop a set of Fit NOLA standards to identify successful programs and policies
- Create employee wellness programs healthy procurement policies
- Advocate for universal assessment and reporting of patient weight and linkage to nutritional and physical fitness programs by health care professionals
- Support policies and environments that provide healthy nutrition and active lifestyles for children and families

She has studied all the major dietary theories and uses practical lifestyle coaching methods to create and nurture happy, healthy bodies.

She relates her own personal struggles and experiences, sharing a positive attitude to help overcome mental and emotional obstacles.
Drawing on long relationships with local healthcare partners, Maria brings a fresh approach to delivering health and wellness information.
