Original airdate 12/18/2012. Along with loss of life and property, the closing of schools and subways, and damage to thousands of businesses, Sandy brought with her a slew of healthcare problems: coping with mold, the lack of light and heat, days or weeks stuck inside waiting for elevator service, hospitals and clinics closed, and a myriad of mental health issues. Host Monica Sweeney, MD, talks about these concerns and the responses so far with: Dr. Michael Lucchesi, Chief Medical Officer at Downstate Medical Center; Dr. Delrita Abercrombie, Clinical Psychologist at Brookdale University Hospital; and from FEMA, Robert Hammaker, a Crisis Counseling Program Specialist.
