Come hear Brett Davis, a New Orleans native and the founder of Grounds Krewe and Dana Eness, Executive Director of Urban Conservancy, discuss how their non-profits are collaborating to make our city's special events more environmentally conscious.  Their goals include providing the tools and services necessary to help special events in New Orleans reduce waste and improve efficiency.  Ground Krewe's initiatives include "On the Route" parade recycling, a sustainable Mardi Gras throws catalog, and the waste reduction marching krewe - the Trashformers.

Join us for a great talk from our State Public Health Veterinarian, Dr. Gary Balsamo, as he tells us about how cooperation between medical, veterinary, and wildlife disciplines is functioning and has functioned in Rabies, vector-borne disease, bacterial, and viral disease surveillance and response during his tenure at the Office of Public Health in Louisiana.

Please join us for the Tulane MD/MPH Student Group Fall Blood Drive, taking place from 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. on Friday, September 6, 2019 in the first floor Diboll Gallery of the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Tidewater building (1440 Canal St.)  Donors will receive a "Make the Right Call" Saints t-shirt, and either Blood Replacement, Heart Club or Family Blood Coverage from the Blood Center.
