Key Edwards Medical Advisor a Shreveport Dentist & Oral Surgeon

The individual that Louisiana Governor Bel Edwards is relying upon for much of his medical advice is a Shreveport oral surgeon and dentist.

Dr. G. E. Ghali is Chancellor of LSU Health Shreveport.

According to a KTBS-TV3 (Shreveport) news report last week, Edwards is in constant communication with Ghali. And almost daily, during the governor’s briefing, there is a reference made of the Shreveport hospital.

According to Ghali’s bio, his practice includes primary cleft repair, cosmetic surgery, and head and neck cancer. Other professional interest are pediatric craniofacial deformities (cleft lip and palate, and dentofacial deformities). Surgical and teaching interests include dentoalveolar surgery, dental implants, cosmetic surgery, head and neck oncology, and trauma.

His degrees include Baylor College of Dentistry, Parkland Memorial Medical Center (Surgery), LSU Medical School, and Emanuel Hospital (Surgery).

However, it appears none of Ghali’s areas of practice or specialties include epidemiology, the study of distributions, causes, prevention, and the control diseases in populations.

Other members of LSU’s leadership team also appear to lack that background.

In a Zack Parker article in The Ouachita Citizen yesterday, Ghali is quoted as saying Louisiana should remain under lockdown through the end of May.

“I think it’s a mistake to open too early,” he said.

Wrote Parker:

If the state of Louisiana does not keep social distancing restrictions in place through May, the state’s residents could suffer from a second wave of COVID-19 infections and deaths, a top state health official who reportedly communicates regularly with Gov. John Bel Edwards says.
