I am assembling lists of medical professionals, who want to help...but we cannot get info from FEMA or Red Cross.

Im sure that there are many more small towns between NO & Mobil, AL, that need medical assistance. It seems that all the federal assistance is going to NO. As it should.

But in these other areas, either in the local hospitals, or in the towns, themselves, I am reading posts of towns being passed, by the FEMA & Federal teams.

Even if the hospitals, NH, small towns have staff, they cant work forever....they will need replacements.
