Louisiana Officially Launches Go Local Website Today
Louisiana Go Local is officially launched! Louisiana Go Local lists thousands of services across the state. People can find doctors, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, support groups, diabetes care, cancer services, home health care, weight management services, and much more by visiting Louisiana Go Local (www.medlineplus.gov/lagolocal).
Gov. Bobby Jindal proclaimed October 28, 2009 Go Local Day in Louisiana to recognize the launch of the site. The proclamation (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/go_local.pdf) notes that “knowing how to locate health services in the community can aid in the prevention of disease and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.”
Louisiana Go Local is produced by Baton Rouge General’s Health Sciences Library in collaboration with the LSU School of Library and Information Science, and the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. Additional thanks go to the Louisiana Go Local Advisory Board, East Baton Rouge Parish Library, and Pennington Library and Information Center.
Congratulations to Baton Rouge General and to all who worked hard to create this new Go Local site for Louisiana!
