METAIRIE – Humana Inc., one of Louisiana’s leading health benefits companies, will host a grand reopening celebration for its relocated neighborhood location in Metairie, at 747 Veterans Memorial Blvd., on Thursday, Jan. 11.

All residents are invited to attend the free community event, which will feature a cooking demonstration with New Orleans celebrity Chef Nino Thibodeaux; SilverSneakers exercise class; chargrilled oysters from Drago’s; live entertainment, giveaways and more. Attendees can also learn better ways to manage their health and well-being via a health fair featuring representatives from various community partners, including JenCare, Ochsner and SilverSneakers.

The new Humana location is a 6,500-square-foot space – with an activity room almost twice the size of the former Metairie site a few blocks west on Veterans – to accommodate the growing number of Greater New Orleans residents who participate in free fitness classes, healthy cooking demos, health and wellness seminars, and disease-specific education classes.
