Signature Programs
The foundation's two signature programs focus on improving the wellness and well-being of Louisiana children.

Smart BodiesSmart Bodies was launched in 2005 to address the growing problem of childhood obesity in Louisiana as a joint effort by Blue Cross and the LSU AgCenter, a statewide research extension program in the LSU System. The Smart Bodies program is a private-public partnership working to provide schools with grades K-5 with an interactive education program designed to prevent childhood obesity.
