6th of December, 2023, New Orleans, Louisiana — CAGLA’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) is comprised of some of the top healthcare providers from across Louisiana. Our SAB members provide strategic guidance and direction for our CAGLA state legislative initiatives and for our annual NeauxCancer Oncology Conference.
Last Saturday night CAGLA presented their 2023 Scientific Advisory Board Member of the Year Award to Dr. Ralph Corsetti. Dr. Corsetti is a Professor of Surgery at the Tulane University School of Medicine within the Department of Surgery with a clinical practice in surgical oncology including breast, endocrine, and melanoma surgery at Tulane’s Northshore campus based at Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington, LA. Upon being presented with this award Dr. Corsetti has these words to say:
“The momentum that CAGLA has created in less than 5 years toward the betterment of cancer care for citizens of Louisiana is beyond amazing! So proud to be a member of this organization! With corporate health care increasingly limiting physician leadership and input more often, it is a blessing to be involved and engaged in an organization that is succeeding for all the right reasons! CAGLA Strong!”
