TEACHING
For Emory undergrads, learning new perspectives on health is easy as 1, 2, 3
To change the way college students talk about health, the first step is for students to do the talking. That's the innovative approach of Emory's peer-taught Health 1,2,3 Program.

 

SCHOLARSHIP
'Executing Freedom' examines the evolving role of the death penalty
Emory history professor Daniel LaChance's debut book looks at more than 50 years of shifting American culture and how it has altered perceptions of the death penalty.

 

LITERATURE
Poets Emily Leithauser, Richie Hofmann to give free reading
Two poets with Emory connections will present a free reading and discussion on April 25 in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library.

 

COMMUNITY
Employee Town Hall serves up information, entertainment
At last week's Employee Council Town Hall, Emory staff members enjoyed a buffet meal and musical performances, with remarks from President Claire E. Sterk and time to talk informally with Sterk and other university leaders.

 

RESEARCH
Fecal transplant replants microbial garden
When facing a life-threatening infection, the "yuck factor" is a minor concern. In a new video, Emory physicians explain how FMT (fecal microbial transplant) restores microbial balance when a patient's internal garden has been disrupted.

SERVICE
Volunteers needed to help with Chair Rodeo, Commencement Day
Emory staff members are invited to join in the university's rich history of service to the graduating class, their families and guests by volunteering at Commencement. Opportunities begin May 3 with the annual Chair Rodeo.
