Humanitarian Care Continues for Katrina Evacuees

Association of Black Cardiologists Offers Unique Medical Care and Aid

To immediately assist patients impacted by Hurricane Katrina, the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) is furnishing health screening and recreating medical records of evacuees. According to ABC, this is an "unprecedented outreach of its 600 members."

ABC describes specific objectives for the thousands of individuals displaced by the horrific storm. A medical team is at work identifying health conditions (heart failure, hypertension and diabetes), making local primary care referrals and resuming the health care regimens for those displaced by Katrina. Doctors also want to make sure that people who are ill receive adequate supplies of prescription medication. More info:
