POST KATRINA CONFLICT AND CHANGE: LSU/VA HOSPITALS, PROGRESS OR CIVIC DISASTER
The decision on whether and how to rebuild Charity and the Veterans Affairs Hospitals in New Orleans post-Katrina raised many complex issues and challenges. Local experts and citizen advocates will examine failures in the public process, alternatives that were available, fiscal responsibility, the impacts to the environment, community, historic neighborhoods, social justice, and healthcare - and the lessons learned going forward.
