The LSU School of Medicine’s Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA), the LSUHSC Science Youth Initiative (SYI), and the New Orleans Latino community organization Nuestra Voz (Our Voice) worked together at the “Que Pasa?” Latino Festival in Lafreniere Park in Kenner on Friday, October 6th, 2017. LSUHSC students, staff, and faculty handed out health literature, provided blood pressure checks, and answered questions on breast cancer, cardiac health, smoking, and drug abuse. Breast cancer awareness buttons, coasters, magnets, and other gifts were distributed. Children also enjoyed dressing up like scientists and health care professionals. The team showcased the K-12 school partnerships and internship programs offered at LSUHSC, and raised awareness of the educational opportunities and career options afforded by LSU Health-New Orleans including the Schools of Medicine, Graduate Studies, Nursing, Public Health, Dentistry and Allied Health Professions
