Oil Crisis: Far From Over

CHF released a study this week that left us deeply concerned about the children and families directly impacted by the oil spill.  The study found that over one-third of parents report that their children have experienced either physical symptoms or mental health distress as a consequence of the oil spill.  In a few short weeks, CHF will deploy a Mobile Clinic to Plaquemines Parish (south of New Orleans), an area heavily impacted by the disaster.  This unit will provide much needed medical care and public health information about this ongoing crisis to families.
