New Orleans Health Fair

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from the PBS News Hour, entitled "New Orleans Health Fair". On-air correspondent Susan Dentzer reported this segment, which was posted to the web on 8 February 2006 at:

The show notes for this podcast included:

"A health fair was set up by a medical assistance program to help the thousands of poor, uninsured and chronically ill residents from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The NewsHour Health Unit is funded by a grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation."

The News Hour website has a transcript of this podcast:

I realize that this podcast isn't about "learning" per se, but I have been following post-Katrina New Orleans very closely, given my involvement with the project. And this podcast certainly is very relevant to a better understanding of the state of our society today.

Best regards,
