  1. CORE

Hello CORE Crew!

Our next health screening event will be the YMCA Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 22nd, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. During this event, we will be checking blood pressure & glucose levels, as well as performing brief heart & lung, neurological, and musculoskeletal exams. I will also be recruiting a few residents to help out with abdominal exams and to sign physical exam forms so that these kids can participate in summer sports.

We have had great experiences working with the YMCA in the past, and this is one of the few CORE health screenings that incorporates a full physical exam. So, bring your friends and brush up on those clinical skills! I have broken the event up into 2 shifts to minimize the time commitment but feel free to sign up for both:

If you have any questions, please let me know. As the event approaches, I will contact volunteers with more details.

Thank you,

Katelyn Robillard

  1. SRHC

Hey L3s and L4s,


Every year, the LSU Student-Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. Starting this semester, we have officially changed the New Orleans Mission clinics to Saturdays instead of Thursdays. Ozanam Inn clinics are still on Saturdays from 10am-2pm. New Orleans Mission clinics will now be on Saturdays from 1-4pm. If you have already signed up for a Thursday clinic this semester, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up. You do NOT have to have previously volunteered at either of the SRHCs to volunteer now. Feel free to contact us at the emails below with any questions about the clinics.


Thank you,

Heather Valdin, Ozanam Inn Clinic Director (

Max Musharoff, New Orleans Mission Director (
