The second annual LSUEM Alumni Reception was a huge success. We had a fantastic turnout with 48 people! For those who were able to attend, I hope that each of you enjoyed catching up with friends and seeing new faces. We had alumni from the 1980s, all the way up to current chief residents. The range of alumni was incredible. Thanks to Dr. Catenacci for choosing the Orleans Grapevine.

mardi_gras_2We currently have 78 members from our 350 plus alumni. We are still trying to locate all of our alumni so please send any information that you may have. Our membership includes annual alumni get together, access to alumni information, newsletters, an alumni T-shirt and only costs $50 for the first year and $40 for renewal. In addition, our planning committee is working on new events and projects.

We would also like to thank all of our alumni, Drs. Aruna Akundi, Jim Ellis, Stephen Hosea, Robert Kelman, Joe Litner, Alan Nemeth, Leigh Patterson, Huan Vu and other generous individuals and groups who donated funds to our Residency Disaster Relief Fund. Most of the funds went directly to the residents for new clothes, new books, and/or a new stethoscope. The remainder of the funds went directly to the LSU program for badly needed supplies. We can not express enough our appreciation for the amazing outpouring of support. If you would like to donate to the Fund, then please send your gift to address below.
