On behalf of our entire team at the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians, we offer our prayers to everyone impacted by last week's hurricane. Thousands of our citizens have lost their homes, businesses, and livelihoods. At least 14 Louisianans have lost their lives. We know that clean up and an assessment of personal property and business operations will take time. Know that the LAFP is here for you.
Unfortunately, our LAFP members were not spared from the damage. From Lake Charles to Ruston, several of our members have reached out and have sustained damage. We are still assessing the impact to our members, but will share more details in the next Weekly Update. Louisianans are known for their compassion and resiliency. We will recover.
The LAFP has a dedicated webpage with resources for you and the families you serve. Visit https://www.lafp.org/practice-resources/disaster-preparedness to view and download helpful tools. This page will be updated with new resources regularly.
