Why a Public Health Film Festival in New Orleans?

In 2018, Louisiana ranked No. 1 as the State with the greatest health challenges and No. 3 in health outcomes according to America’s Health Rankings. Unfortunately, Louisiana has the highest prevalence of childhood poverty in the country (28%) in addition to the some of the highest rates of low birthweight babies, smoking, and obesity.
