The Health and Education Alliance of Louisiana* (HEAL) improves opportunities for children to succeed in school and life. HEAL believes that educators and health care providers must address physical, social, emotional, and academic development collectively. HEAL connects children with the care they need, building nurturing support and services in their schools, creating safe environments for them to live and learn, and enhancing their families and communities in the process.
