Continuing the Fight for Expanded Healthcare Resources in Wake of BP Oil Spill Disaster

On January 12, 2011 Alliance Institute and others were invited to a small meeting following the release of “Deep Water, the Gulf Oil Disaster and the Future of Offshore Drilling” by the National Commission on the BP Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling.  At the event, Alliance Institute pointed out the need for access to health care in addition to long-term monitoring of workers associated with the disaster and the clean-up (a copy of the recommendations can be found here).

Following the 2010 BP Oil Drilling Disaster, Alliance Institute has been working diligently with the Gulf Coast Fund for Community Renewal and Ecological Health, Louisiana BayouKeepers, Jefferson Community Health Care Clinic, and the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights to bring health care services to coastal communities affected by the disaster.

Alliance Institute and its partners are currently working through a variety of avenues to access the funding necessary to make health care professionals available to gulf coast communities.
