Critical Care Providers Should Know
Medical providers who have served the community during or after Hurricane Katrina know firsthand the unique difficulties the city faces as it tackles health issues. Many of the residents who needed medical services and health education were hardest hit by the floods. Today, New Orleans is headed in the right direction but the overall health and wellness of the community needs attention, financial assistance and continued support by organizations and policies outside of healthcare.
Health Start New Orleans recently received an additional five years of funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration. HSNO is managed and operated by the Health Department of New Orleans. HSNO is a collaborative and multi-faceted program that empowers various organizations, services, and committees to improve long-term health and recovery.
New Orleans remains at risk to both lingering health risks left behind from the Katrina disaster and the threat of future of natural emergencies. The city continues to both recover and prepare emergency services in the case of natural disaster or emergencies. Medical providers are encouraged to visit the City of New Orleans website on Emergency Preparedness for more information on plans and programs in the area.

About New Orleans
Founded in 1718, New Orleans is one of the most loved cities in the United States. It is well known for its unique local culture where everything from patterns of speech to popular cuisine is different from the rest of the country. Situated on the southern border of the country right on the Mississippi River, this is one very unique city that has always drawn a lot of visitors.
Today, visiting the city is different than ever before. Due to widespread flooding from a hurricane, the city was totally covered in water with most of the local homes and businesses destroyed. With restoration continually ongoing, the city is taking back its old charm as people return to visit and to live.
Mardi Gras was always the biggest attraction in the city, and it continues to go on as the city undergoes renovations. This is a huge festival where people flash key body parts in the streets, getting colorful strings of beads thrown at them in return. The fun is to get as many strings of beads as possible, or simply to stroll through the crowded streets and watch everyone else partying through the night.
While the active adult nightlife remains a big attraction of the city, there other charms of this unique city as well. For instance, the swamplands are not seen in most other states in the country, so many people are drawn to them. They want to see alligators up close or watch skilled handlers lure the alligators out of the muddy waters. Also, the local cuisine is quite original and is known for its intense spice flavorings. There are some unusual meals that locals serve up to visitors as well.
