Gold Humanism Honor Society

Our May Gold Humanism Honor Society Student of the Month is Gregor Dierks, MSIII! Gregor Dierks is a compassionate and kind person who cares incredibly deeply about those around him, and there is no doubt the patients recognize his positive impact on their care. During a H&P exercise in first year, Gregor interviewed a patient who had been in the hospital for ~3 weeks who had not had a single visitor come to see him during their stay. Gregor took time to talk with the patient about their life, experiences the patient had, about the patient’s family, etc. Gregor has also had several occasions where he has taken time to check on his critically sick patients in the hospital multiple times during a shift to ensure that they were comfortable and obtained updates. Gregor Dierks is truly one of the most selfless, kind, and compassionate people and has no doubt been a huge asset to the LSU Health Shreveport family. Congratulations, Gregor!
