Independence Day Holiday

The Schools of Allied Health Professions, Graduate Studies and Medicine will be closed tomorrow, Friday, July 3, in observance of Independence Day. For a full list of LSU Health Shreveport holidays, visit the HR website.


New Website Going Live

Contact: scroom@lsuhsc.edu

LSU Health Shreveport's new website will go live today. Along with a new contemporary design, the site features responsive design technology that automatically adjusts to fit the desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device being used. The redesigned site has a new, user-friendly web content management system, or CMS, making it easier for departments to update their pages. The new website was a collaboration between Medical Communication and Information Technology Services. Over the next few weeks, medical communication representatives will meet with departments to help with content and photography. A redesign of the campus intranet, myhsc, is being planned.


First Fellowship for Radiology

Radiology Fellowship

Dr. Stacey Lee & Dr. Stacy Massey

The Department of Radiology now counts a fellowship in breast imaging to its name. Stacy Lee, MD, assistant professor of radiology, will oversee the program. Dr. Lee graduated from UT Southwestern's diagnostic radiology program before also completing a two-year breast and women's imaging fellowship there. The one-year fellowship program will provide a combination of hands-on clinical training, an opportunity for research experience and multidisciplinary work with surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology and breast pathology. Dr. Stacey Massey, a graduate of the radiology residency program, is the first fellow.


Deadline for Employee Performance Evaluations

Contact: thildr@lsuhsc.edu

Performance Evaluations for Classified Employees are due August 31. Supervisors, managers, directors and department chairs must meet this deadline for three important steps in the PES (Performance Evaluation System) process. First, a final evaluation session must be conducted with each classified employee for the review period that began July 1, 2014 and ended June 30, 2015. Second, completed PES forms must be submitted to Human Resource Management. And third, a new planning session must be conducted with each classified employee. The new planning session will be applicable to the review period from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. The PES form and additional information about the PES process are available here. Lorri Johnson (5-5623) and Terri Hildreth (5-6501) are also available to answer your questions.


Latest Newsletters Online

Contact: scroom@lsuhsc.edu

The July-August-September issue of Inside LSU Health Shreveport is out. The newsletter, available online here and in boxes on campus, features allied health's physical therapy department, a recent emergency a faculty member experienced during a lecture and stories from graduation. The July-August issue On the Inside, which focuses on faculty accomplishments, has also been published.


Quilting Queens of Allied Health Professions

Contact: dwood6@lsuhsc.edu

Quilt Exhibition

A unique exhibit featuring intricate quilts designed and created by local allied health professionals is on display in the Health Sciences Library. The quilting artists include School of Allied Health Professions faculty members, Dr. Lynda Britton, Mary Mitchell, and Dr. Diana Merendino. Also, Mary Beth Beene and Betty Williams, who are retired clinical laboratory scientists from the Overton Brooks VA Medical Center, contributed their artwork to the exhibit. Collectively, these "quilting queens" have about 140 years of experience with designing, blocking, piecing, and sewing! These decorative quilts will be on display until September 25, 2015.


Temporary Closure of Library Study Rooms During Improvements

Contact: djon17@lsuhsc.edu

The individual study rooms on the second floor of the Library will be unavailable July 6-17 while contractors insulate the walls and ceilings. For safety reasons, Physical Plant has asked that students not use the affected rooms even at night or on the weekend during this time period. Group study rooms (2-403, 2-445 and 2-449) on second floor will still be available but might be noisy while the work is being done. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience. End result of the project will be a reduction of noise transmission from one room to another. The Library appreciates the School of Medicine Alumni Association funding the sound dampening project to make the rooms more conducive to studying. We also appreciate Physical Plant working with the contractor and patching up the rooms once the insulation is installed.


Vending Machine Now Managed In-House

Contact: Mtemp1@lsuhsc.edu

The medical school now manages and administers our own vending machine contract through auxiliary services. If you have a problem with your drink or snack machine, please provide the ref. number listed on the machine and call 800-370-1282 for service (this information is also located on the sticker of the machine). If you need a refund due to lost change/malfunction of the machine, visit Susan Whitaker in room #G22A (ground floor of the administration bldg) for your refund. You must bring the reference number from the machine with you in order to get the refund.
