HEALTH
Cancer: What you don't know can save you
Patients usually don't see what goes on outside the treatment room: the pathologists who scrutinize tissue to determine if it's cancerous; the medical dosimetrists who plot the paths of radiation beams; the pharmacy technicians who mix precise doses. Take a look behind the scenes at Winship Cancer Institute.

 

ADVOCACY

As Emory continues to advocate for changes in Republican tax reform proposals, the university's top governance groups have contacted Capitol Hill about provisions in both House and Senate bills that would negatively impact higher education.
