Hurricanes Katrina and Rita

Shortly after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, I was deployed, along with many others from CDC, to the Gulf Coast. Initially, I worked as part of a team establishing emergency room and DMAT surveillance in Mississippi. Later, I worked in New Orleans, investigating whether people reoccupying and renovating homes in the area were suffering respiratory effects from exposure to mold. I plan to document these experiences and the resulting scientific work here.
