A More Resilient Health System in Katrina's Wake

Host: Bruce Japsen

Guest: Karen DeSalvo, MD

Five years after Hurricane Katrina, the horrific memories of disaster and devastation remain, but the healthcare system has created a legacy of resilience for the city's safety net and a potential national model beyond the primary care medical home. Dr. Karen DeSalvo, professor of medicine at the Tulane School of Medicine and a leader in the health system's post-Katrina recovery, tells host Bruce Japsen about the new community-based effort that has since been created to improve medical care delivery in New Orleans.
