SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – COVID-19 has exposed racial disparities in healthcare throughout our country, but LSU Health Shreveport is working to get more minorities to enter careers in the healthcare field.
The MOU represents the desire of both parties to increase the number of African American and Hispanic students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) in Louisiana who apply to the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine. The goal is for these students to subsequently be accepted for admission and graduate from medical school.
LSU Health Shreveport receives national media exposure for their White Coats for Black Lives event.
LSUHS students, residents, fellows, and faculty members, joined by Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport employees in Shreveport and Monroe, observed a moment of silence today in support of Black Lives.
The students, residents, fellows, faculty and staff of LSU Health Shreveport all have a different background and may not all come from the same place, but together they make up a community of healthcare professionals that is rich in culture and diversity.
