DeSha Endowment

For Medical Education

DeSha Endowment

Dr. David DeSha leaves a mark on every single student at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. Alumni Drs. Jim and Karen Small wanted to honor his legacy as a beloved faculty member who drives high quality education at the medical school. Earnings from the endowment will be used in perpetuity to fund enhancements to curriculum, student-led initiatives and to improve the learning environment for the students. This crowdfunded endowment accepts donations of a few dollars all the way up to thousands. It speaks volumes to the power of Dr. DeSha and our faculty’s impact upon the medical professionals of the future.

“Every doctor who graduated from the LSU Health Medical School in Shreveport knows Dr. DeSha and benefited from his exceptional mentorship and compassion for students. This endowment ensures this legacy continues for all future medical professionals.” –Karen Small, MD
