Off-Campus Guide to Health Services

Campus Health wants to offer support to Tulane students that may need or have the desire to visit community resources for their personal healthcare. Using off-campus resources can be difficult to navigate, which is why Campus Health has provided an off-campus resource guide for marginalized identities to have access to a list of healthcare providers in New Orleans that are well-known for assisting these populations. This guide consists of primary care physicians and therapists that are a part of these communities and/or work closely with racial and ethnic marginalized populations, sexual and gender marginalized populations, veterans, and professionals that offer services in multiple languages. These professionals were selected based on their personal statements online, patient and community reviews, and external audits.

If a student has had an experience with one of these organizations and/or professionals that does not align with Campus Health’s values, please email La’ Tesha Hinton, Director of Community Engagement and Health Equity, at lhinton1@tulane.edu. Additionally, please email La’ Tesha if there are any additional health services that you have had a positive experience with.
