Learn how Opelousas General Health System (OGHS), the main health care provider in the rural area of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, rapidly enacted a communications and response system to address gaps in community needs and support during COVID-19. OGHS also will share how they tackled existing health disparities further exacerbated by COVID-19 through their participation in the Healthy St. Landry Alliance.

The alliance is a consortium of more than 25 local partners, including other health care providers, local government, faith-based organizations, and community groups. 

Presenters: Dr. Kenneth Cochran, DSc, RN, FACHE, president and CEO, Opelousas General Health System; Tracey Antee, director, Opelousas General Health Foundation.

Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the LLN is a community of AHA health systems and hospital leaders designed to discuss, ideate, and reform health care in response to COVID-19. It’s an opportunity for participants to examine and problem solve real-world issues with a curated network of respected subject matter experts and distinguished colleagues.
