The main goal of THE LEARNING CENTER of Lady of the Sea General Hospital is to provide high quality education programs and health screenings for the people of our community. We offer many educational programs and medical services to the community of South Lafourche, and many events are free of charge.

The Learning Center provides the following programs on a regular basis: Wellness Clinic, Lunch 'N Learn, Toddler Time, Medi-Camp, Safe Sitter, Diabetes Education Classes, CPR Instruction, KEEP (free kidney screenings for qualified participants), RAD Kids and Healthy Pathways. Healthy Pathways is a recently introduced program that assists area businesses and their employees in monitoring their health with on-site testing and educational classes.
The Learning Center also annually hosts "Her Health and What Women Should Know", a symposium on women's health issues; "Her Health", a free symposium for mothers and their daughters ages 11 to 14 that explains health issues pertaining to young adolescent girls; and the Safety Circus, Lady of the Sea General Hospital's SAFE KIDS event held each year in May.
The Safety Circus includes presentations from different area businesses and programs and includes snacks, giveaways, and great informational tools for children. For more information, see the Safety Circus page on this website.
Since most car seats for children are improperly installed, Lady of the Sea's Learning Center takes on the task of teaching proper car seat installation to prevent unnecessary injury to all vehicle passengers in an accident. Car seat fittings are available by a trained fitter, so please contact us for more information.
