Message from Interim Dean John Finnegan, Jr.
The events of the past week in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast temper
our joy in a new semester, yet magnify for us the importance of public
health. Amid this tragedy, we are reaffirming our commitment to do the
best that we can in our respective roles and responsibilities.
Many of our faculty, staff and students are part of the national Medical Reserve Corps
network that is deploying volunteers to assist with the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina. Also, the SPH is part of the network of
schools of public health nationwide that has agreed to help students of
the Tulane School of Public Health, which is closed for the semester
because of the disaster. Click here to get more information about our efforts. Click here to find out how you can help.
