Forward From Medics In No Chuck Munson

New Orleans, Sept. 10, 2005 — I am in touch with the New Orleans medic team now in Algiers (part of NOLA, but across the river and unflooded).

People need their medications

I just talked with Roger, one of the medics now in the Algiers neighborhood. He says that they are fine with basic first aid supplies. What the people really need are medicines. He says that they are seeing lots of people with hypertension, high blood pressure, and heart disease who have been off their meds since the storm hit. Also, lots of diabetics who need insulin and other medication and treatments.
