INTERNATIONAL
Photos showcase Emory students' fieldwork around the world
Students in the Master's of Development Practice program perform months of fieldwork to gain insight on public health, economic development and human rights by living and working with varied populations. See the winners of this year's photo contest highlighting their efforts.

 

LEADERSHIP
Emory community advocates for changes in proposed tax legislation
Since House Republicans unveiled the proposed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Nov. 2, the Emory community has mobilized to advocate against provisions that would unduly impact Emory students, employees and patients.

 

RESEARCH
Landmark study may impact standard stroke treatment guidelines
Standard guidelines for stroke treatment recommend clot removal only within six hours of stroke onset. But a milestone study in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that clot removal up to 24 hours after stroke led to significantly reduced disability for properly selected patients.

 

IMPACT
'Essential' student support program receives Mellon Foundation funding
Emory's Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship, a program that expands access for underrepresented minorities to earn doctorates and faculty positions, has received renewed funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

 

COLLABORATION
Emory, Grady awarded nearly $4 million to study Atlanta car crashes
Emory's Injury Prevention Research Center, along with Grady Memorial Hospital and collaborators at the University of Michigan, will launch a five-year project to study motor vehicle crashes in metro Atlanta that result in injuries treated at Grady.

 

BUSINESS
Goizueta partnership helps female coffee farmers in Nicaragua
Grounds for Empowerment, an initiative of Social Enterprise @ Goizueta, is partnering with Nicaragua's Vega Coffee to provide even more economic opportunities for women who are specialty coffee farmers.
