07/11 - Beyond The Spill: A GulfWatch Special
What are the challenges facing the GulfWatch member regions a year after the capping of the BP oil leak?
LPB has partnered with nine other public broadcasting stations to form GulfWatch – a consortium of Gulf Coast television and radio stations whose mission is to provide continuing coverage of issues affecting the region. From the ongoing recovery from the BP oil spill, to the extreme weather and flooding this spring, GulfWatch members have been sharing stories online for the past 12 months. In July, GulfWatch reporters from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida will explore the challenges facing their regions a year after the capping of the BP oil leak. Join these journalists, citizens and a panel of experts as they share updates on the environmental, economic and health issues along the coast. Airs Wednesday, July 27 at 7PM on LPB.

How many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to them?
Baton Rouge and New Orleans consistently rank among the top three cities nationwide for the highest HIV and AIDS rates per capita. And in rural Louisiana, the number of new HIV infections has risen slightly with infected individuals more likely to escalate to an AIDS diagnosis.
So, how many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to assist them? Why has the state seen an overall decline in new HIV diagnosis but an increase in its rural areas? What affect is the PrEP drug regimen having on stabilizing and preventing the disease? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “HIV/AIDS in Louisiana.”
