Minnesota medical personnel pitch in in Louisiana

New Iberia, Louisiana

A lot of what we're doing is building relationships that we can follow up with. We stopped here at the shelter and saw one patient with a bite - picked up on untreated hypertension, and felt like we had accomplished something. We're also connecting a lot of people with resources - whether it's cell phone psychiatric referrals, followup, or phoning in additional sites that should be followed up on.
The nurse from the American Red Cross told us that this shelter would be getting 150 more people later today when another shelter closes, and promises us we'll be busy when we return tomorrow.
