Baton Rouge Wellness Center

The mission of the Wellness program is to actively engage and empower gay and bisexual men and transgender individuals in improving their health and wellness.  The program will accomplish this by providing holistic health programming, affordable health care services, and connections to existing resources. Ultimately this is a community-driven program that aims to decrease HIV/AIDS, STDs, and health disparities among gay and bisexual men and transgender communities.  Health is defined as a whole body, holistic concept, including mental/emotional, physical, sexual, and spiritual well-being.  The health of individuals is linked with the health of the community, and strengthening the gay and bisexual men and transgender communities across Louisiana is a vital step in improving the health of gay men and transgender individuals.

The Wellness Center provides health screenings (including HIV & STDs), general physical exam, mental health assessment, and education every Monday from 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. at Open Health Care Clinic.We ask that patients arrive no later than 7:30pm to ensure that everyone can be seen by 8:00pm.
