The Big Uneasy: Katrina’s Unsung Heroes (2009) is a tribute to the staff of Louisiana’s nursing homes who brought thousands of residents safely through the storm and its aftermath. The DVD was produced by Cathie Brady & Barbara Frank, B&F consulting, Inc. and Susan Wehry, MD with funding provided by a grant from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. The DVD may be purchased for a nominal fee and a pdf of the Facilitator’s Guide is available at no charge.
