Photo Friday - Remembering Hurricane Katrina

This Sunday marks the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.  Immediately after Katrina, CHF Co-Founders Irwin Redlener, MD and Paul Simon, went down to the Gulf to survey the damage and organize a rapid medical response. Five days after the storm, mobile medical units from Children’s Health Fund’s (CHF) national network arrived and began providing medical care.  Since 2005, CHF has established three permanent projects in the Gulf Coast area and continues to care for children and families that are still feeling the effects of the Hurricane.
