Two LSU Health Shreveport physicians are among more than 100 people who will be honored in May as recipients of this year’s Ellis Island Medal of Honor. The ceremony will take place on the historic New York City island.
The award is given annually by the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations to a U.S. immigrant or native-born citizen who has made significant contributions to society.
Dr. Quyen Chu is chief of surgical oncology at LSU Health Shreveport. His family fled Vietnam in 1975, when he was seven.
