Ville Platte Rotary Club Hears from Family Tree Spokesman

VILLE PLATTE ROTARY CLUB

JANUARY 21, 2015

 

     The Ville Platte Rotary Club today (Tuesday) heard from Kelli Landry, a case worker  with The Family Tree Information, Education and Counseling Center in Lafayette.  Kelly is involved in the “Healthy Start” program, a federally funded program designed to reduce infant mortality. The program targets high risk African American women who are pregnant or who have young children.

    The program is designed to help women in Evangeline, Lafayette, St. Martin, Iberville and Acadia parishes. She reported that the infant mortality rate in Evangeline Parish is at 9 percent which is three times the national average. She is currently going to the library, health unit and other public places to meet with women in need. The program also assists with depression screening, anger management and basic health.

     Rotary Club President Elect Mitch Fontenot reported on last weekend’s Mid Year Assembly for Rotary District 6200. He announced that the annual District Conference is scheduled for April 16-18 in Crowley and urged rotary members to attend.
