IMPACT
Emory Healthcare provided $73.5 million in charity care in FY 2016-2017
During the last year, Emory Healthcare provided $73.5 million in charity care, which includes care for patients with no health insurance, not even Medicare or Medicaid, and no resources of their own. Over this same time, Emory medical faculty also provided $24.6 million in unreimbursed care at Grady Memorial Hospital.

 

TEACHING
Emory students propose solutions to problems facing migrants, refugees
For 20 Emory students, the challenges faced by the world's displaced peoples took on real-life dimensions this semester through an anthropology seminar that found them working together with migrants and refugees across four continents.

 

RESEARCH
Helping the brain prune bad habits
A drug that stimulates neuron pruning can nudge mice away from habit-driven behaviors when combined with retraining, Emory neuroscientists have found.

 

PROFILE
Tamika Kendrick: Answering the call for help
As Florida residents fled the devastation of Hurricane Irma earlier this fall, Emory Police Communications Manager Tamika Kendrick headed in the other direction -- volunteering to answer 911 calls in Naples, Florida, striving to be "the first calming voice on the phone."

CAMPUS

Emory was blanketed in white Friday, Dec. 8, when a rare early December snowstorm prompted the university to close for the afternoon, reopening at noon on Saturday. While students enjoyed an unexpected break from final exams, staff leapt into action to keep roads safe and essential services running. See more photos.
