Flu counts have risen earlier than normal in Louisiana and we are encouraging folks to take action by getting their flu vaccine.
The Office of Public Health, in collaboration with our local parish officials, will be holding a Flu Vaccination Fair on Saturday, November 23rd from 10a-1pm at the St Bernard Recreational Center in New Orleans. This event is FREE and open to the public. No insurance required.
Please feel free to share the attached flyers widely and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

I am sharing this Health fair application. Please feel free to contact Mr. Woodrow Parker from Aqua Safety First Community Program:

We want to invite you to our upcoming web training on the same topic: “Infant Ready Emergency– Infant Feeding Basics,” Tuesday 8/27, 11:30am-1pm. See the flyer below for details, and register. In New Orleans, you can join live from your computer, or attend a group viewing at Ochsner Baptist, our local viewing site. 1.5 Nursing CEUs or CERPs available.
We have decided not to reschedule Grand Rounds for August or September, because we have such a full fall calendar of community events. Instead, we will add this topic back into the Grand Rounds calendar for the year. Mark your calendars: The next Grand Rounds will be in October (October 10 at Xavier, Oct 22 at Ocshner Baptist).
Stay cool and dry,

Please find attached our latest schedule for Krewe de Lose for this Fall, running Sept 9 through Dec 13.
We have some exciting new topics coming through based on interest and feedback, so we hope to see you and your patients/clients/communities there to join the dance and discussion!
Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in us coming to your event/group to share about our program.
Have a great weekend,
