Office of Diversity Affairs Annual Meet and Greet

The Office of Diversity Affairs (ODA) hosts activities designed to make the institution a more welcoming, inclusive place with the goal of developing broader respect and understanding across cultural divides. The campus-wide meet and greet kicked off the start of the academic year. Physicians, faculty, residents, fellows, and students were encouraged to attend. Held in a non-traditional classroom setting, the event provided a safe space for students to engage and discuss career goals and aspirations.

The 2021 Meet and Greet guest speaker, Dr. Gretchen Petterway (Alum, 2006), discussed her medical school journey and encouraged students to consistently perform at their personal best. Select students and staff members were then presented with a memorable token of appreciation from the ODA for their dedication and commitment to improving inclusion on the LSU Health Shreveport campus.
