Hello —- Please join me at the Lighthouse Louisiana to participate in small group sessions with visually impaired clients on Wednesday, May 3rd at 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. I hope you can join me.
Summary:  CSE credit for small group sessions at Lighthouse Louisiana (123 State Street) next session May 3rd. 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.
Thanks so much!  


Cultural and Religious Awareness in Medicine (CRAM) will be having its first general meeting on Thursday, May 4th at noon in MEB S14. CRAM is intended to be an inclusive environment where we learn about and celebrate holidays of lesser known religions and cultures from our peers in a lighthearted way. Please come by, eat lunch, and learn more about CRAM! We will be discussing the future plans for our groups and open positions on our Exec board. Beginning next year each meeting will be focused on a specific holiday, but for this meeting we will be having a multi-cultural potluck. So bring a dish that is representative of your culture or religion to share with others. If you plan to attend, please fill out the following survey:
We hope to see you there! If you have any other questions feel free to contact either Mel Hotz ( or Shukan Patel (

3. SNaHP

Next Monday, May 8th at 7PM, Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP) will be screening “Fix It.” This documentary takes an in-depth look into how our dysfunctional health care system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively impacting on the nation’s health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens. Check out the preview at
Check the Wednesday announcements for the location and RSVP request.
If you have any questions please contact Justin at or Ashley at

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 (
