Dr. Oz visits New Orleans, WWL-TV

October 14, 2011

HealthCorps, founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz, launches its program in New Orleans with the help of its Official Water Sponsor Evamor Natural Artesian Water. What is constantly missing below is the company name that made this day possible – EVAMOR. So every time you read an entry below, just insert EVAMOR.

We had a crew, including WWL-TV’s medical reporter Meg Farris, follow Dr. Oz around the city when he came to visit on Friday.
