Louisiana State University has received a $1.25 million federal grant to help health care students learn how to better care for HIV-positive patients. The grant was announced last week in Baton Rouge by Bobby Jindal, the principal health care policy adviser to the secretary of the U.S. Health and Human Services department. The money will go to train students in the LSU medical, dental, and nursing schools on methods of care for people with HIV/AIDS.
"It is a wonderful opportunity for LSU to continue to [work with] education providers to improve the quality of care and to reduce the tremendous human and financial impact of this disease," Jindal said. LSU hospitals treat about 80% of the state's 6,000 HIV-positive patients.
