Medical professionals & Samaritans Now

If you are a medical professional, please consider joining Samaritans Now. Approximately 70% of the primary care physicians who evacuated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast have not returned. The Episcopal Church is working to improve access to medical care; in New Orleans, St. Anna’s Church is operating a free clinic with a medical van in the 9th ward, and in Biloxi, the Lutheran Episcopal Disaster Response (LEDR) is providing a free medical clinic in a local church. Samaritans Now sends a team of medical workers, mainly physicians and nurses, to work in Louisiana or Mississippi for one week each month.
