Shreveport, LA - May 2, 2011
Shreveport, La. (May 2, 2011) - Campus Federal Credit Union today announced its new partnership with Feist-Weiller Cancer Center at LSU Health Sciences Center Shreveport to support the Arts in Medicine project. The partnership will celebrate the grand opening of Campus Federal Credit Union's new full-service branch at 1555 East 70th Street in Shreveport.
The Arts in Medicine project at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center encourages cancer patients to draw and paint while they receive chemotherapy. Research shows cancer patients can decrease their stress levels during chemotherapy when they participate in creative projects.
Campus Federal members who complete five transactions at the new full-service branch will receive a set of note cards featuring art by cancer patients at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center. In addition, the credit union will make a $10 donation on behalf of the member to Feist-Weiller Cancer Center.
Glenn Mills, MD, FWCC, and acting director of Feist-Weiller Cancer Center said donations will help support Feist-Weiller's unique art program in the days and months ahead. "We thank Campus Federal for their support the Arts in Medicine project at the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center."
Ron Moreau, vice president of business development and community relations, commented, "Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is an amazing facility that provides invaluable resources to the Shreveport community and the region. We are excited to build a community partnership with the center and celebrate the grand opening of our new full-service branch in Shreveport."
