Founded in 2001, the Louisiana Men’s Health Organization is a grassroots organization comprised of health professionals, business leaders, and community activists from the Greater Baton Rouge area committeed to men's health and well-being.

When it comes to health care, women are 100% more likely to visit the doctor for an annual exam and preventative services than men.  Women live healthier and longer lives than their male counterparts. And at age 100, women outnumber men 8 to 1.

Louisiana Men’s Health Organization strives to change men’s attitudes about their health and well-being by heightening the awareness of preventable health problems, encouraging early detection and treatment, as well as educating the public on health risks specific to men of different ages and races.

To accomplish this, the LMHO organizes an annual Men's Health Conference to provide a venue where men can seek guidance on their health and wellness. The conference also allows health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
