Healthy BR has a mission “To identify and coordinate efforts aimed at healthy living and an active lifestyle into a unifying commitment to better health.”

The site is broken down into areas of focus, for example sections on healthy eating, projects, and being physically active. There is also a section listing local health services.

A great feature on the site is the calendar, which has a listing of healthy activities and related events taking place around the city. It makes getting involved much easier, from free exercise classes to getting healthy food from the farmers market.

A really valuable resource promoted on the site is MedLineBR, a 24-hour hotline staffed by registered nurses. They can provide free, quick and easy medical advice, suggest treatment options and refer callers to physician offices.

The MedlineBR phone number is 225-765-6906.
