HLC is in the fourth year of a service learning program with Xavier University and LSU School of Nursing. These professional students teach HLC nutrition, fitness and conflict resolution lessons to local youth. This collaboration not only has provided additional resources to HLC school districts but has also students with the opportunity to demonstrate empathy, and civic responsibility. Through this effort 3,000 students are reached each school year.

Healthy Lifestyle Choices (HLC), CELEBRATING 10 YEARS, empowers children with the knowledge and lifelong skills to make healthier choices in the areas of nutrition, fitness, safety, conflict resolution and violence prevention, and substance abuse prevention. HLC employs a specifically designed school-based curriculum for children in pre-Kindergarten through grade 8 to provide them with the skills to combat obesity, violence, intentional/unintentional injury and substance abuse– the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults, and to make healthy choices before adolescence when most of these behaviors begin. HLC programs currently reach more than 200,000 children in 44 Louisiana parishes and 40 states.
