HEALTH
Emory launches largest-ever clinical research study in Atlanta
Emory researchers seeking to better understand aging and age-related diseases have launched the Emory Healthy Aging Study -- the largest-ever clinical research study in Atlanta, with plans to enroll 100,000 people. The study will lead to better prevention and treatment for conditions like Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

 

INTERNATIONAL
Emory partners with Yonsei University for collaborative research

INNOVATION
Ecocriticism offers interdisciplinary look at literature, environment
Emory is at the forefront of an emerging field that examines, through literature, how people relate to the environment and are in turn shaped by it.

 

FITNESS
Take a stroll on campus for National Walking Day
Healthy Emory joins the American Heart Association in celebrating National Walking Day on Wednesday, April 6. All Emory Healthcare and Emory University employees are invited to participate in 30-minute fun walks stepping off from more than 20 convenient locations.

 

CREATIVITY
April arts events include new show from the Emory Dance Company
Arts at Emory welcomes spring with a full slate of events, from dance and theater to the return of the popular outdoor concert series, Jazz on the Green.

Sunny skies greeted attendees at Wonderful Wednesday festivities March 30. The tradition harkens back to when Emory didn't have classes on Wednesday. While the mid-week break lasted only from 1967 to 1982, Wonderful Wednesday was revived in 2006 as a student-led weekly gathering featuring activities from a variety of groups.

"If you get sepsis, you have a higher chance of dying than if you have a heart attack, stroke or trauma. There is no question that increasing awareness of sepsis would save lives."
