Tim Shorrock has been reporting on post-Katrina economic development and the health care crisis in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast.
Tim Shorrock

Over the fellowship term, Shorrock has been researching and writing articles for national publications on how post-Katrina economic development in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast has been skewed towards powerful corporations and failed to address the needs of the poor and dispossessed. His stories have chronicled the health-care crisis in New Orleans, and the response of grassroots activists through the Common Ground clinic; the impact of casino development on the Mississippi coast; and the human impact of the hurricane on New Orleans's Ninth Ward. He plans to keep posting articles and interviews about his experience through the spring of 2008.
