COMMUNITY
Interfaith vigil honors Emory students killed in terrorist attack
The Emory community filled Cannon Chapel to capacity to remember students Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain, who were killed in the Dhaka terrorist attack. Speakers described the two friends as "true servant leaders" whose legacy will continue on campus.

 

TRIBUTE
'We will forever carry on their legacy'
As Emory continues to mourn the loss of Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain, friends and professors reflect on their kindness, intelligence, generosity and leadership.

 

RESOURCES
Support available to those stressed by world events
Those in the Emory community struggling with the stress of recent national and international events related to violence, terrorism and social unrest can find resources to help on campus.

 

CONSTRUCTION
New, two-story pedestrian bridge to span Clifton Road
A two-story pedestrian bridge will rise over Clifton Road as Emory University Hospital continues progress on its new, state-of-the-art hospital tower. The bridge will be constructed in the center lanes and lifted into place this week, causing traffic delays.

The new Sustainability Vision and Strategic Plan calls for Emory to model innovative, sustainable choices at every level, "from the copy room to the operating room, from the classroom to the residence hall."

 

INSIGHT
Global Connections trip brings civil rights movement alive

BIOLOGY
A disease that makes us love cats?
Documented human cases of toxoplasmosis go back as far as ancient Egypt. Evolutionary biologist Jaap de Roode worked with TED-ED to create a video about the disease, which is caused by a parasite that can only reproduce in the intestines of cats.

Quote

 

"Each of us will face crucial bioethical decisions in our lives -- how to make difficult treatment choices when diagnosed with illness, how best to care for a sick or elderly loved one, or whether to adopt cutting-edge technologies to detect a genetic disorder or treat a neurological disease. Bioethics education prepares young people to tackle these tough questions."
James Wagner, Education Week, July 14, 2016
