Health Concerns After Katrina

I haven't been posting this week, as I've been following and absorbing the news out of the Gulf Coast. I'm truly stunned by the conditions, the response, the entirety of the devastation. That said, here are a few resources related to health after hurricanes.

First, though:
You should check with your employer to see if they match donations.
Also, Charity Navigator evaluates agencies for organizational efficiency and capacity. and provides this list of highly rated charities working on Katrina relief. They also provide tips, such as designating your gift for the specific relief effort.

Donate to help people:
  • American Red Cross
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Mercy Corps
  • Salvation Army
  • Second Harvest

    Donate to help animals:
  • American Veterinary Medical Association
  • Humane Society of the United States
  • PetSmart Charities


  • CNN article on health concerns
    CDC Resources:
  • Health Concerns Related to Hurricane Katrina
  • After a Hurricane: Key Facts about Infectious Disease
  • Disaster Mental Health Resources
  • Prevent Injury after a Natural Disaster
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  • Keep Food and Water Safe
