ENGAGEMENT
From tiny seeds communities flourish
Thanks to a community grant from Emory's HERCULES Exposome Research Center, low-income West-side Atlanta residents have been planting food gardens in their yards. It is only one of several community outreach projects the center has funded in Atlanta.

 

COMMUNITY
Emory Healthcare Call Center honors a colleague with heart screening
When Michelle Martin, a team lead at the Emory Healthcare Call Center, suffered a fatal heart attack during a work break, her co-workers were devastated. Emory doctors and staff stepped forward to arrange heart screenings for all call center employees, who turned out to be at high risk for heart disease.

 

INSIGHT
Crane's 'Eating Ethically' draws inspiration from Emory classroom
Jonathan K. Crane, Raymond F. Schinazi Scholar in Bioethics and Jewish Thought at Emory's Center for Ethics, uses philosophy, physiology and theology to explore contemporary eating habits in his latest book, "Eating Ethically: Religion and Science for a Better Diet."

 

RESEARCH
Goldwater Rule 'gagging' psychiatrists no longer relevant, analysis finds
Rationale for the Goldwater Rule -- which prohibits psychiatrists from publicly commenting on the mental health of public figures -- doesn't hold up to current scientific scrutiny, finds a new analysis led by psychology professor Scott Lilienfeld.

INNOVATION
Have skull drill, will travel
"Anthropological genetics is a huge and growing field," says Kendra Sirak. The Emory graduate student has developed a specialized technique for drilling into ancient skulls to remove DNA samples.
