A third-year medical school student at LSU Health-Shreveport has been named a recipient of the American Medical Association’s 2014 Leadership Award.  

Nadine Kaskas is among a select group of physicians and medical students who’ll be honored next month at the AMA’s annual meeting.  The award recognizes those who exemplify the traits of commitment to service, community involvement, altruism, leadership, and dedication to patient care.

According to a new release from LSU Health, Kaskas has been active in starting the “American Medical Student Research Journal” and currently serves as its editor-in-chief.  It’s one of the first medical student peer-reviewed publications in the country.  The med school says she helped create the Research Distinction Track, which is a research honors program for Shreveport medical students, and serves as a representative on the institution’s Quality Enhancement Plan Committee for accreditation.

Kaskas is a native of Shreveport and graduate of Centenary College.  She’ll graduate from the School of Medicine next May and plans to apply to dermatology residency programs this fall.
