About the Hosts
Brittany Bausch and Ellen Johnson are your passionate hosts for this event. While they both live in Baton Rouge, they each have made the hour-long drive to New Orleans, as their schedule permits, to attend the Alliance support group. "Group therapy helps you realize you are not alone,” Brittany shares “It allows people the opportunity to give and receive unconditional support. The support group in New Orleans made such a positive impact on my recovery journey. Having that support in Baton Rouge would be a lifeline that I could utilize to its full extent." Come support these amazing women in Baton Rouge!
