THE MAROON I VOL. 86, NO. 4 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2008 New culture room unveiled after month-long debates By MASAKO HIRSCH CONTRIBUTING WRITER At the beginning of October, the first display in the Culture Room will be unveiled after months of heated debate and student protest. The Culture Room, which is replacing the location of the Center for Intercultural Understanding at the front of the Danna Center, is set to be a multimedia room celebrating the student body's diversity." Everybody has a story to share," said Chris Cameron, director of co-curricular programs. According to Cameron, the Culture Room will be a venue for student organizations to create displays with the available technology to educate their peers. "This is a way to reach students who wouldn't otherwise engage in dialogue," Cameron said. The official opening was set to be at the beginning of the school year, but was pushed back until the beginning of October when all of the media equipment would be ready. In the mean time, a presentation of photographsphotographs and essays are on display, capturing the stories of students during the evacuation for Hurricane Gustav. The first real exhibit will honor Loyola's Jesuit values. The opening comes in the midst of an unsettled debate, much of which is rooted in the moving of the Center for Intercultural Understanding to the second floor of the Danna Center. While it was initially settled that the office of director, Lisa Martin, would keep its location next to the bookstore, plans shifted at the beginning of the summer. Students quickly planned a sitin and circulated a petition in response.

Women get the doctor's opinion on health issues Ochsner doctor answers personal questions By JESSICA ERWIN CONTRIBUTING WRITER Dr. Nicole Charbonnet wishes she had a nickel for every time a patient told her they hate the invasive part of a gynecology appointment. At the Girls' Night In presentation in the St. Charles Room Wednesday Sept. 24, Charbonnet reassured young women that gynecologists try not to start their appointments that way, and when patients "show up and get a pap smear, that's half the battle." Charbonnet discussed women's health issues including medical careers, gynecology appointments, women's cancer prevention, sexual assault, sexually transmitted diseases and cervical cancer. Charbonnet has been an obstetrician and gynecologist for three years for Ochsner Health System, which has recently replaced Louisiana State University Medical as the university's healthcare provider. Prior to working for Ochsner, Charbonnet worked for a private practice. One of the main components of Charbonnet's presentation was promoting Gardasil, a human papillomavirus preventative medication that Charbonnet often gives to young women in her office. "My office jokes that I have stock in the company," she said.
