Almost 13 years ago, Hurricane Katrina landed in Louisiana and displaced thousands of people, including children. What happened to the children who lived through that traumatic experience? In this episode, Dr. Lori Peek joins us to discuss a 7-year-long research project she co-led about the ways the catastrophic event affected the children of Katrina and their ability to cope with the destruction.
