Subject: volunteer physicians
Dear Dr. Palmisano,
I have two contact numbers for physicians to volunteer for the
evacuation centers. 225-763-5766 or 225-763-5740. Both of these
numbers are at the command center for the State OEP and DHH offices
who are working with the centers. There is also a web site
www.helpthemnow.net that will allow medical volunteers to sign up and
submit the information needed before they travel to Baton Rouge.
If any physicians from Baton Rouge contact you, I can schedule them
and they do not have to go through the contacts listed above.
I am trying to coordinate local physicians for three evacuation
centers here in Baton Rouge to act as a resource for out of town
volunteers and captain the care areas of the centers. We ask each
physician to bring a steteoscope, prescription pad and a copy of
The River City Convention Center has two medical care areas. River
City 1 is located on the north side of the center. Centroplex 2
(CP2) is located in the south end zone of the center. Parking is
available in the West garage.
The Clarke Activity Center is located on Southern University campus.
Parking is located near the building.
Thank you for calling. If I can offer any further assistance, please
Michele Naquin, CMOM
