Welcome to our new and improved Louisiana Primary Care Association blog!

At LPCA, we know that when it comes to serving the needs of underserved and vulnerable populations across Louisiana, there’s no organization more equipped to speak to this subject than our state’s network of Federally Qualified Health Centers. So, this content-sharing platform is designed with you in mind! We hope you will use our blog as an opportunity to share knowledge, insights and advice on a variety of topics concerning community health centers so that our entire network may benefit from your experience.
