Staff from LSUHS School of Allied Health visited campus Nov. 16 to help students enrolled in a freshman seminar class for science majors learn about the growing career prospects in the medical fields. Upon their arrival, the delegation was greeted by LSUS Provost, John S. Vassar.

Dr. Diana Merendino, LSUHS director of the cardiopulmonary science program, Stephanie Blackburn, director of the clinical laboratory program at LSUHS, and Lindsey Michelle, cardiopulmonary science instructor at LSUHS, spoke about two bachelor degree programs jointly offered by LSUS and LSUHS: the bachelor's degree in medical technology and the bachelor's degree in cardiopulmonary science.
These visitors, as well as LSUS alumna Madeline Fechter, director of admissions at LSUHS School of Allied Health, discussed academic preparation, course requirements, and career prospects for individuals who earn one of these bachelor's degrees.
