Seniors in Southeast Louisiana will soon have a new team approach to treatment.

Doctors, social workers and dieticians from LSU Health Sciences Center are teaming up with the 55,000 people who have "Peoples Health."

Through coordinated care, they will diagnose, manage and prevent chronic illnesses from getting worse in patients with conditions like diabetes and lung disease.

Also, through research, they will help find the best treatment.
