Skip Phillips and Ryan French having fun at The Answer 2018

Last year’s sold-out event supported lifesaving research at LSU’s Pennington Biomedical Research Center. Every day, Pennington Biomedical’s world-renowned scientists work hard to find answers to today’s chronic diseases.

Proceeds from the event are invested in research that is taking place right here in Baton Rouge and aims to find the triggers of diabetes, obesity, dementia, cancer and more.

Come to this year’s event to help us find The Answer!
