11/05 - The High Cost of Health Care

Why does it cost so much for healthcare in Louisiana and why are there so many people who don't have health insurance?

Those are two of the subjects addressed when Louisiana Public Broadcasting airs the November edition of its award-winning Louisiana Public Square on Wednesday, November 16 at 7PM. It will repeat on Sunday, November 20 at 4PM on LPB.

This month's discussion will feature excerpts from the Day of Deliberation held on Saturday, October 29 at LPB and Southeastern Louisiana University. More than 80 people participated in the discussions that also included the high HIV/AIDS rate in the state. Panelists included Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals head Dr. Fred Cerise, Woman's Hospital of Baton Rouge CEO Teri Fontenot, State Senator Jay Dardenne of Baton Rouge; and Roberta Madden, director of women's health and public policy for the YWCA of Greater Baton Rouge.

LPB President/CEO Beth Courtney and LSU Media Law Professor Craig Freeman are your hosts.

Louisiana Public Square is simulcast on KRVS-FM in Lafayette and will air on WRKF in Baton Rouge on Sunday, November 20 at 3PM.

08/16 - Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference (encore)

What difference has a decade made?

Due to severe flooding in Baton Rouge and the surrounding communities, the recording of “Black & The Blue,” which was to be the August episode of Louisiana Public Square, was cancelled. Instead we will be broadcasting an encore presentation of “Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference.” More information, including broadcast dates and times, is below.

“Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference”
Eleven years ago, Hurricane Katrina swept through Southeast Louisiana, triggering what would become the nation’s costliest disaster. Less than a month later, Hurricane Rita inundated Southwest Louisiana forever altering the landscape. The storms uprooted residents, while the rest of Louisiana and its neighboring states welcomed them with open arms.
What affect did the storms have on economic development along the I-10 corridor? Just over a decade later, how have public services changed? How prepared is Louisiana to handle hurricane evacuees? And how did the hurricanes change the demographics of the state?
This month Louisiana Public Square takes a look at where the state is now on an encore presentation of “Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference” airing Wednesday, August 17 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, August 21 at 11 a.m. on LPB HD.

The panelists are:
· Andy Kopplin, Office of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu
· Paul Rainwater, Rainwater Consulting, LLC
· Stephanie Riegel, Greater Baton Rouge Business Report
· Nihal Shrinath, The Data Center

The program includes interviews with Jason El Koubi, One Acadiana; Chris Guilbeaux, Governor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP); Kathy Kliebert, Secretary of the Department of Health and Hospitals; Allison Plyer, Executive Director of the Data Center; John White, State Superintendent of Education; and Christopher Bohnstengel and “Byrdie” Lane, owners of Byrdie’s Gallery and Café in New Orleans.

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney, and Kim Hunter Reed,Ph.D., who served in the Blanco administration during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, moderate the discussion.
“Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference” will also air in New Orleans, on WLAE. It can also be heard on public radio stations WRKF in Baton Rouge; Red River Radio in Shreveport and Monroe; and WWNO in New Orleans. Check their station websites for schedule.
