IMPACT
Giving back on Emory Cares International Service Day
The 15th annual Emory Cares International Service Day, held Saturday, Nov. 10, drew more than 1,000 registrants in 50 cities and seven countries around the world. Volunteers helped with dozens of community projects, including more than 20 in the Atlanta area.

 

INSIGHT
Students, faculty encouraged to 'do lunch' together at the DUC-ling
A new initiative encourages students and faculty to invite each other to share a meal at the DUC-ling. The meals will be free for faculty and students not participating in the Emory meal plan.

 

EVENTS
Emory Dance Company to perform five works from faculty, guest artists
Students in the Emory Dance Company present their fall concert Nov. 15-17, addressing the notion of "struggle" within the body, in relationships and in politics.

MILESTONE
Driving discovery
Emory received $734 million in external research funding in fiscal year 2018, the most ever for the university. Funded research helps Emory improve and save lives, attract top professors and students, and create jobs and spark economic growth.

 

RESEARCH
Children unable to distinguish real guns from toy guns in photos
A new study found that a majority of children could not tell the difference between a real gun and a toy gun in comparison photos. In contrast, a majority of parents, caregivers and the children themselves were confident their children could distinguish between real and toy guns.

 

COMMUNITY
Health sciences library opens 'Spirit Lives On' dementia awareness exhibit
"The Spirit Lives On: Art and the Mind," a new permanent exhibit at the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library, features art and photography by people with dementia and their caregivers from the Emory community.

INSPIRATION
Emory commemorates Veterans Day
As cold rain fell outside, the Emory community filled Cannon Chapel on Monday to honor the service and sacrifices of veterans and those currently in the U.S. military. Learn about how Emory serves veterans and view more photos from the ceremony.
