LSUHSC Medical Students who participated in the Summer Research Internship Program and learned laboratory and clinical research techniques used in medical research presented posters of their research results Friday, October 11th, 2019. Over the summer, students had been given instructions on how to write an abstract and were trained in presentation skills, including how to prepare and present their research results. All the students were well prepared and stood by their posters ready to discuss, explain, or answer questions about their topics.

First Place (tie):
Kyle LaPenna (Dr. Lefer): “Development and Characterization of a Novel Small Animal Model of Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction”

All new LSUHSC ID’s issued beginning August 2017 will have Pay paw capabilities automatically activated within 24-48 hours. In order to add money for the first time, students, faculty, and staff may use one of the Pay paw machines on campus, go to the bookstore, or add it online. With our secure Pay Paw Online Card Office, LSUHSC ID holders or their relatives may deposit money using a credit card online.
Replacement ID’s will still need to be taken to the Bookstore to transfer Paypaw accounts.
Pay paw is a LSUHSC based transaction system that allows faculty, staff, and students to access, without cash, a variety of goods and service throughout the campus:
Vending machines at most locations
Food services in the Medical Education Building
Food services at the LSU School of Dentistry
MEB Atrium Coffee Kiosk
Health Sciences and Dental Bookstores
Copy and Printing Resources at many key locations (including the Dental and John P. Ische Libraries!)
For more information, check out the LSUHSC Pay Paw Services webpage or speak with a library or bookstore staff member!
Exam time got you stressed? Did you know the library has flashcards online? Through our AccessMedicine platform you can access flashcards in a variety of subjects.
On the left side of the library web page choose Databases. Click on the “A” under browse and select AccessMedicine (on or off campus). Click on Study Tools and choose Flashcards from the drop-down menu.
*If you are a first time user you will need to set up your profile, but then you will be good to go.
The selections are:
CURRENT Medical Diagnosis & Treatment (CMDT) Flashcards, 2e
A new coffee vending machine has been installed in the Isché Library Commons! When the need to refuel while studying strikes, just go to the 3rd floor Library Commons for a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
Don’t forget that the Commons are open 24/7!
Coffee is $.75, and everything else is $1.00 (tea, hot chocolate, latte, etc.). The machines take cash only (no PayPaw).
The Isché Library welcomes John P. Bourgeois, a new librarian in the Reference Department. He started on December 1, 2016.
John holds a Master of Library and Information Science from LSU in Baton Rouge and a Master of Public Health from Tulane University. John has worked at Tulane and Harvard in their Schools of Public Health, and he is coming to us from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux where he was a Research Librarian and head of Access Services.
Please join us in welcoming him to LSU Health. If you are in the library, stop to say hello and meet John!
On Wednesday October 19th & Thursday October 20th, from 8 AM to 4 PM, routine testing of the waterless fire suppression system will be taking place in the library rare books room, on the 4th floor of the Resource Center Building.
Announcements will be made throughout testing to let building occupants know that these systems are being tested and that evacuation will not be necessary.
Testing will involve periodically activating fire alarm strobe lights and audible alarms (speakers and horns) on the floors being tested. When all testing has concluded, an announcement will be made so that all occupants will know that the testing is complete.
Thank you for your patience.

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.
