MILESTONE

INTERNATIONAL
Radiology training saves lives in Egypt
It's not uncommon for Emory Radiology's faculty to be welcomed as visiting scholars by top academic health centers. It is uncommon, however, for a country's top government health official to issue the invitation, which makes Sherif Nour's visit to Egypt all the more exciting.

 

COMMUNITY
Office of LGBT Life announces 2017 Pride Award winners
Emory's annual Pride Awards honor students, alumni, staff and faculty members who represent the Office of LGBT Life's mission of creating an affirming and just campus environment.

 

PUBLIC HEALTH
Contact tracing, with indoor spraying, can curb dengue outbreak
A study led by Emory disease ecologist Gonzalo Vazquez-Prokopec finds that contact tracing, combined with targeted, indoor residual spraying of insecticide, can greatly reduce the spread of the mosquito-borne dengue virus.

HUMANITIES
Emory receives $1.2 million grant to help shape future of scholarly publishing
Emory College has launched a multiyear initiative, funded by the Mellon Foundation, to support long-form, open-access publications in the humanities in partnership with university presses. Sarah McKee, who joined Emory's Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry this month, will focus on projects that publish humanities monographs in digital formats.
