Smoothies for Cancer Patients

Contact: kstron@lsuhsc.edu

For cancer patients, eating can be difficult. Many feel too sick to eat or drink which can cause even more issues. Sue Crow of the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is using her first-hand knowledge of this phenomenon to offer a little help to cancer patients. She recently published a smoothie recipe book designed to help cancer patients get the nutrition they desperately need in a refreshing, delicious treat. For more on the book, watch this video. To purchase your copy, contact Kelli Strong Dauphin at (318) 813-1056 or via email. You can also order online on Facebook or from the LSUHS Foundation. The proceeds will be used to provide cancer patients their own copies of the book.

Welcome Events for New Students

Welcome Dinner

The excitement of starting medical school can come with a lot of stress. To ease the transition and help students connect with other classmates, each August, several faculty members host "get acquainted" dinners for new students. Upperclassmen and other faculty members are often invited to help break the ice. It is a great opportunity for the students to talk to their peers and work out some of their jitters.


Dr. Goeders' Patent Approved

Contact: mhedgc@lsuhsc.edu

After more than a decade, Dr. Goeders' EMB-001 patent, a combination drug for the treatment of addiction and other neuropsychiatric disorders, has been approved by the United State Patent and Trade Office (USPTO). LSU and Dr. Goeders filed the US non-provisional patent in November of 2006. The EMB-001 patent was licensed by Embera from LSU and is considered the company's lead product. The cocaine use disorder drug is currently beginning Phase 2 clinical trials. Congratulations to Dr. Nick Goeders for patent number 9,415,107!
