Ewig (right) presents Dr. Ike Muslow, dean of Louisiana State Univer-sity School of Medicine in Shreveport, with an $18,000 check, a special annual scholarship fund from the American Cancer Society, Caddo Parish unit. (Times Photo by Billy Upshaw) Med School Gets Funds For Awards Presentation of $18,000 for eight scholarships at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport was made yester-day by the Caddo Parish unit, American Cancer Society. Unit president Robert C. Ewig presented the check to Dr. Ike Muslow, medical school dean. Funding for the grant came from a legacy left to the local cancer society by the C. and F. Keen Estate of Shreveport. Mr. Keen was a geologist who lived in Shreveport and who was a cancer victim, said Ewig. Recipients of the eight $2,250 scholarships funded by the grant will be announced this fall, according to medical school officials. Purpose of the scholarships, said Ewig, is to help alert medical students to the problem of cancer while helping provide the students with additional income. The scholarships are just one of the programs the local unit of the cancer society is undertaking, according to Ewig. Plans are being made to conduct a pap smear testing clinic later this year, but a date has not been set, he said. In addition there will be a program Oct. 15 for nurses dealing with management of cancer patients. Representatives from the local unit will go to New Orleans for a meeting with the state cancer society in October, he added.
