Woman’s Foundation Inc. was founded over 33 years ago in Lafayette, Louisiana and is dedicated to promoting the total well-being of women and their families. The Foundation strives to serve as a center of excellence by providing educational learning opportunities for professionals and individuals through collaborations and partnerships focusing on expertise and credibility. Education is delivered through a blended approach of learning programs.
The Foundation operates to promote the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of women and their families. Continuing Medical Education, Community Education, and UL/LSU-E Nursing Scholarship Opportunities are programs and services that allow Woman's Foundation Inc. to achieve and fulfill this purpose.
Current on-going programs include sessions on puberty, college preparedness for high school juniors, comprehensive pediatric weight management, legal rights and responsibilities for young parents, pre-teenagers and teenagers making important life decisions, and baby-sitter training. Proceeds from the sales of commemorative fish that create the Women's & Children's Hospital's Newborn Exhibit support the community education programs.
