  1. CSE Opportunity for Lighthouse Louisiana- July 1st

Hello —- Please join me at the Lighthouse Louisiana to participate in small group sessions with visually impaired clients on Wednesday, July 1st 8:45 am to noon. These sessions will focus on topics such as independent living skills for visually impaired patients or social/craft classes with visually impaired patients. In case you haven’t heard of Lighthouse Louisiana, it is an amazing organization that provides services and support to vision-impaired and hearing-impaired members of the community. This is a remarkable opportunity to help increase awareness of visual impairments (especially for anyone interested in Ophthalmology, Medicine, Nursing or Allied Health Profession). Please feel free to contact me with any questions: Marie D. Acierno, M.D. macier@lsuhsc.edu. I hope you can join me.

Summary: CSE credit for small group sessions at Lighthouse Louisiana (123 State Street) next session July 1st. Please contact me by email and let me know if you will be able to attend. This will be a monthly event posted for CSE.
