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.
Education activities for A.A.P, A.C.O.G, and Pediatric Jambalaya conducted by the CME department include special conferences, lectures, recurring conferences, study group activities, and special seminars.
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.
