HONORS
Emory Alumni Board honors scholars dedicated to making positive impacts
This year's winners of the Emory Alumni Board Scholarships include an undergraduate business student, a law student completing her second Emory degree and two students pursuing master's degrees in public health.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Emory sophomore Lucy Wainger's poem selected for 'The Best American Poetry' anthology
Lucy Wainger's poem "Scheherazade" was selected to appear in the 2017 edition of "The Best American Poetry" alongside work from Joyce Carol Oates, Leonard Cohen, Sharon Olds and Robert Pinsky.

 

IMPACT
Building a framework for ethics in global health research
Biomedical and public health research seeks to solve some of the world's most pressing problems, but failing to understand the social and political context can sink even the most well-intentioned study. James Lavery, inaugural Hilton Chair in Global Health Ethics, aims to establish Emory as a world leader in the fast-emerging field.
