Public health leaders with the Louisiana Department of Health will be answering questions for Louisiana Department of Health's new Q&A blog series, and together they will paint a statewide perspective of the COVID-19 pandemic and their communities' response.

Today, the series launches with Region 3's Dr. William "Chip" Riggins, Regional Medical Director for the parishes of Assumption, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. James, St. John, St. Mary and Terrebonne.

Follow the series as it unfolds on the LDH Blog.

Louisiana's nine regional medical directors (RMDs) oversee the parish health units that serve the daily public health needs of their communities. The RMDs are in constant contact with state health leadership and local leaders to help guide Louisianans through the COVID-19 public health emergency, particularly among key demographics.
