Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport, also known as LSU Health Shreveport, is an academic center for medicine and medical research in Shreveport, North Louisiana, in the United States. It is part of the Louisiana State University System. The medical school opened in 1969. Among the founders were Joe E. Holoubek of Shreveport and Edgar Hull, who in 1931 had been one of the founders of the Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans.[1]

Feist-Weiller Cancer Center[edit]

The State of Louisiana Board of Regents created the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center in 1993 as part of the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. The center was originally known as LSU's Center of Excellence in Cancer Research, Treatment, and Education.

The Center was renamed the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center in 1997 after donations made to honor the Feist and Weiller families.
