It’s New Orleans: Out to Lunch

Hosted ByPeter Ricchiuti

Tulane University A.B. Freeman School of Business finance professor Peter Ricchiuti holds court over lunch at Columns in Uptown New Orleans. Peter's lunch guests are New Orleans business people, from startups to CEO's, from artists to tech entrepreneurs, musicians to movers-and-shakers. New Orleans is on everybody's list as a great place to party but it's also on many lists of the best place to start a business. Peter's deeply knowledgable and equally levity-laden approach to business conversation neatly makese sense of the Crescent City's contradictions.

Pelvic Speech – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

In business, we go to great pains to treat men and women equally. But when it comes to pain itself, men and women are not always equal. That’s why Sara Reardon opened NOLA Pelvic Health.

Sara Reardon

NOLA Pelvic Health is the first and only clinic in New Orleans that specializes in the treatment of women’s pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions -including pelvic pain, bowel and bladder dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and pregnancy and postpartum recovery. 

Lana Joseph

Dr Lana Joseph is the founder of High Level Speech and Hearing. There are two High Level Speech and Hearing clinics in New Orleans – one Uptown and one in Elmwood – where you can get all kinds of audiology services, from getting your hearing tested, to getting your hearing aid repaired.

Generally, when we talk about healthcare we’re thinking about one of two scenarios: getting treatment for everyday ailments like the flu. Or catastrophic illness, like heart disease or cancer. For these eventualities we expect to be taken care of by health clinics, or hospitals, that are generally part of large health systems. But there are other types of healthcare that fall into specialty areas, that are cared for by small, private clinics, like NOLA Pelvic Health and High Level Hearing.
