UNC Hospitals' Hurricane Katrina Response Blog

Maybe somebody at UNC can help me find a person who is dear to some of us here at UC Davis, in the Spanish Dept. We have worked with Mr. Irvan Perez, formerely of St. Bernard Parish, and become friends over the years. We finally heard that he was evacuated 4 days after Katrina hit, and is staying with his grandson, who is an MD there in Chapel Hill. We don't know his grandson's name, or whether he's affiliated with UNC hospitals, but would appreciate it if anybody there has any relevant information, please pass it on to Prof. Sam Armistead at UCD, through me ( Thank you so much. We are so grateful and relieved to know that Irvan at least survived the ordeal, and are immensely grateful to all of you who contributed your time and effort to help the people affected by Katrina.
