Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan's Grant for Gumclientuploads/_photos/Dr Nathan small-1.jpg

Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan, Professor & Chair of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery at the School of Medicine in Shreveport is a leading member of Feist-Weiller Cancer Center’s translational cancer care team, and her research involving curcumin received a $40,000 in-house Idea Grant which resulted in a $342,410 NCI grant.  

Now, Dr. Nathan has been awarded an additional $50,000 in grant funding from the LSU System’s Leveraging Innovation for Technology Transfer Program (LIFT2).  The grant will be used to develop a cancer-preventing chewing gum based off of her research on Curcumin, and its efficacy in preventing cancer.

Patient Painting on Display in Louisiana Tower

clientuploads/_photos/Small Anemones and Woman.jpg

Feist-Weiller Cancer Center patients have been given a great honor! One of the pieces of art created by FWCC patients has been chosen for display at the Community Foundation of North Louisiana's Community Central, located in Louisiana Tower at 401 Edwards Street in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The piece chosen is our patients' rendition of "Anemones and Woman--Harmony" in Blue by Henri Matisse. The painting was created through our Arts in Medicine program, which gives chemotherapy patients the opportunity to participate in soothing art therapy while receiving chemo treatment.

FWCC is very proud of our patients' artwork, and we are thankful for all of the volunteers that make the Arts in Medicine program so beneficial to our patients and community.

For more information on the Arts in Medicine program at FWCC, please visit the Arts in Medicine website by clicking this link, or contact Darlene Whitaker via email at dwhita@lsuhsc.edu. The Community Central project is made possible through a joint venture between The Community Foundation and Shreveport Regional Arts Council.
