Ochsner and Rouses Markets Partner for Choose Healthy Initiative

"We have always considered Rouses as more than just a place to buy groceries," said Donald Rouse, President of Rouses Markets. "I think this will go far in educating and motivating our customers to lead healthier lifestyles. Having Ochsner-endorsed meal plans and recipes, and food recommendations clearly marked, makes it easier for people to make a healthier choice." The partnership will also benefit Rouses' 4,800 team members. "Ochsner will be providing free, in-store education and health screenings for our team members," said Rouse. "If we educate our employees, they, in turn, will educate our customers."

The way Rouse and Quinlan see it, "Choose Healthy" should also be a boost to the local economy. Rouses has long promoted buying local, and Quinlan thinks that's an important component of the obesity solution. "Part of Louisiana's answer to the obesity crisis is encouraging people to eat fresh, local vegetables and seafood. Educating residents on a healthy diet, and encouraging them to take advantage of our natural resources, can shrink our community's waistline and grow our local economy," said Dr. Quinlan.
