LEARNING
Rose Library brings hands-on research to undergraduate classes

PARTNERSHIP
Emory Healthcare and Atlanta Hawks partner to build world-class sports medicine center and training facility
Emory Healthcare and the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club are partnering to create a first-of-its-kind training and sports medicine center at Executive Park in Brookhaven.

There's plenty to do at Emory in the final weeks leading up to Commencement: volunteer to help in campus gardens, catch a student musical performance, celebrate Shakespeare and more.

 

RESEARCH
Business professor examines implicit bias based on race, gender, class
Goizueta Business School professor Erika Hall made national headlines for her research on biases related to the terms "black" and "African American." Her new work focuses on the role of race in law enforcement.

 

ANTHROPOLOGY
Emory hosts conference exploring the evolution of language from tools
Prominent researchers from around the globe will visit Emory on April 12 to discuss how the handiwork needed by our stone-age ancestors to develop tools may have paved the way for language.

 

HEALTH CARE

Crowds turned out Friday, April 1, for the International Festival and World Cup Tournament, created to recognize the Emory community's diversity through food, music and friendly soccer competition. Wet weather forced the event to move indoors to the Woodruff PE Center, but didn't put a damper on the fun. See more photos.

Quote

 

"While this is a hint there may be a slowing of growth and identification of people with autism, it certainly doesn't yet confirm that we are seeing this leveling out. What it confirms is that autism is a more common condition than we had been addressing for many years and we need to use these numbers to motivate us to help address the needs in the community."
Catherine Rice, CNN, March 31, 2016
