The Council is not an advocacy group.  

The mission of the Environment and Health Council of Louisiana is to facilitate independent, balanced and factual assessments of health, environmental and economic issues as they relate to Louisiana.


Louisiana has a wealth of environmental resources. E&HCL organizes and sponsors workshops and conferences designed to present balanced, objective information about protecting our natural resources and managing risks associated with industries that impact our environment. 


E&HCL works with state legislators to develop funding for cancer research and risk intervention projects.  


A good start is critical to life-long health. E&HCL sponsors comprehensive statewide middle and elementary school health risk intervention programs.
