    LCLT presents FOREVER PLAID

    Friday Feb 22
    7:30 am - 8:30 am

    813 Enterprise Blvd, Lake Charles, LA 70601, USA

    Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx, and Francis) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols - The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's, and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company, they became 'FOREVER PLAID'. On the way to their first big gig, the 'Plaids' are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins...

    Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over zealous precision, the 'Plaids' are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.

    Abdominal Aortic Aneurisms: the Silent Killer

    Friday Feb 22
    12 pm - 1 pm

    2800 2nd Ave, Lake Charles, LA 70601, USA

    Sometimes it’s the illnesses that you can’t see that can be the most harmful. Abdominal aortic aneurism (AAA) is the enlargement of the abdominal aorta. It is rarely symptomatic unless it ruptures—then it can be fatal. The causes of the condition are unclear, but smoking, high blood pressure and family history can all be risk factors. Fortunately, with routine screening, early diagnosis, and appropriate intervention, AAA can be treated and managed.

     

    To learn more about abdominal aortic aneurisms and their signs, risk factors and treatments, join J. King White, MD, FACC, for his lecture. Abdominal Aortic Aneurisms: the Silent Killer

    is a free seminar being held at 12 noon on Friday, February 22, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Light lunch will be provided, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.

     

    Dr. White is a native of Lake Charles.  He received his medical degree from Louisiana State University Medical School in Shreveport.  He went on to complete his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in cardiology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He is board certified in cardiology through the American Board of Internal Medicine/Cardiovascular Disease, and is also a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.

     

    Dr. White has treated patients in the Lake Area since 1988.  He is experienced in many facets of cardiovascular disease treatment including coronary and peripheral vascular disease and aneurysm repair. As a notable figure in the world of cardiology, Dr. White has served as lead investigator in many medical studies throughout his career.  He also performed the first coronary artery stent in Southwest Louisiana, and pioneered the carotid artery stent procedure that is widely used today
