Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden added another accolade to his list of accomplishments.

The mayor took home the 2015 NOVA Award Wednesday night at the Woman's Hospital on Airline Highway. Representatives with the American Hospitals Association presented the award for the Mayor’s Healthy City Initiative.

"This award is really our award because each of us has played such a special role," Holden said.

Healthy BR tries to improve community health by targeting obesity, HIV and mental health.

AHA announced that Healthy BR would receive the award along with four other programs nationwide in July.
