The Library Lunchtime Learning program will be coming to the downtown campus for a Hands-on Technology Expo on July 21. We’ll be rounding up some of your favorite gadgets, demonstrating how to access library resources from your mobile device, and talking about education apps. Bring your own tech tool too!

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu. However, we welcome drop-ins. And if you can’t make it, send an e-mail and we’ll send the handouts to you.

LSUHSC Portrait – probably mid 1950s to mid 1960s.

 

Rowena Spencer passed away at age 91 on Tuesday, May 13th. She will be remembered by generations of New Orleanians for her surgical skills, her commitment to various causes, her eccentricities, and most of all her dedication to the young patients she saved. She was a faculty member in the Department of Surgery (and later Pediatrics) from 1952 until about 1969.

uTip: Text Emergency Alert System

This week, LSU Health Sciences Center introduced an emergency reporting service that will allow faculty, staff, and students to send text messages to University Police in order to facilitate the reporting of crime, to help prevent crime, and to allow police faster and more accurate information.

Subscription and registration with campus emergency alerts is not necessary. Users can simply send a message to 50911 with a text beginning “LSUHSC” in order to notify University Police of emergencies, crimes, and suspicious activities or persons in the area. Normal text message rates assigned by cell phone providers will apply.

Users may also contact University Police with non-emergency information at 568-8270 or via online message at http://www.is.lsuhsc.edu/police/response.htm.

The graphic below provides more detailed information about this service from http://www.lsuhsc.edu/alerts/utip.aspx.

TO SEND A TIP

  1. TEXT 50911 and begin your message with LSUHSC

    • University Police will not be notified If your text does not begin with LSUHSC

  2. You will receive a text to notify you that the text has been received by uTip

LSUHSC Faculty Are the Best Doctors 2013

Want to know whoÔÇÖs the best? Just pick up a copy of the August issue of New Orleans Magazine for a comprehensive list of the Best Doctors (599 doctors in 76 specialties) in the Greater New Orleans area. Recipients for this recognition were chosen from a nationwide peer survey of more than 45,000 doctors.

LSU Health Sciences Center faculty boasts a whopping 45 positions on the list across a wide range specialties. Their expertise includes the fields of allergy and immunology, anesthesiology, cardiovascular disease, colon and rectal surgery, critical care medicine, family medicine, infectious disease, internal medicine, internal medicine and hospital medicine, neurology, nuclear medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery, pathology, pediatric neurology, pediatric specialistÔÇöchild and adolescent psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, surgery, sleep medicine, urology, and vascular surgery.

LSUHSCÔÇÖs very own Dr. Ann H. Tilton stands in the spotlight for her work in pediatric neurology, an ÔÇ£exclusive clubÔÇØ of only 1,200 members in the U. S. and Canada. In recognition of her contributions to the field, Dr. Tilton won the Hower Award from the Child Neurology Society in 2012. Dr. Tilton currently holds positions of Professor of neurology and pediatrics at LSU Health Sciences Center and practicing physician at ChildrenÔÇÖs Hospital. At ChildrenÔÇÖs, she also serves as co-director of the Rehabilitation Center, having established and directed the centerÔÇÖs Comprehensive Spasticity Program.

In general, Dr. TiltonÔÇÖs patients suffer from strokes, clotting problems, trauma, infection, or birth defects. When asked about her toughest cases, Dr. Tilton spoke about the coping of her child-patients versus that of their parents. Whereas children are flexible and resilient, their parents ÔÇ£have to deal with a ÔÇÿnew normal,ÔÇÖ one that differs drastically from the life they were living.ÔÇØ For this reason, teams of therapists (physical, occupational, speech), dieticians, and physicians work together to best care for the patient as a whole.

Congratulations to all who made the list! You can view the Best Doctors online or peruse the LibraryÔÇÖs copy of the magazine in our ÔÇ£Popular ReadingÔÇØ section.
