F3_3 The Healthiest Place in the Nation
Organizer: Amy Sumpter, Georgia College
This field trip to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain will introduce guests to what was once considered a first class destination for the protection and recovery of health. Visitors will stop at several sites connected to the historical health and resort industry including the Lake Front in Mandeville, lunch at Rip's Restaurant overlooking Lake Pontchartrain (attendees should expect to pay approximately $20 for lunch), the famous Abita Springs, the Southern Hotel (a former tuberculosis sanitarium) in Covington, and the Madisonville Lighthouse. Visitors will learn about nineteenth- and early twentieth-century approaches to health, connections to the environment, and disparities across class and race.
