What is Ouachita Well?

A partnership with the YMCA of Northeast Louisiana, the Ouachita Parish Police Jury, Ouachita Parish School Board, and the cities of Monroe & West Monroe.  Our mission is to reduce obesity in the parish by encouraging physical activity and better eating habits. The project compliments the YMCA's national 5210 program. The strategies being encouraged are known to have a positive impact on obesity levels.
