$3.12 Million Grant

LSU Health Sciences Center was recently awarded a $3.12 million grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in order to train more primary care physicians.

An article on gambit.com states “The five-year grant will be used to double the number of primary care doctors trained through the Rural Family Medicine Residency program at LSU’s Bogalusa Medical Center.”

Louisiana has a vast shortage of primary care physicians and statistics are expected to get worse. Congratulations to LSUHSC for working to help our state in this time of need!
