Poet and Emory professor Jericho Brown creates new poetic form for 'The Tradition'
Inspired by Emory creative writing students, professor Jericho Brown created a new form of poetry for his acclaimed collection, "The Tradition." Learn how Emory's Creative Writing Program nurtures a community of scholars, where students and faculty learn from each other.

 

TEACHING
'Nutrition for the Performing Arts' course focuses on science behind peak performance
Part of Emory's Center for the Study of Human Health, Dan Benardot's class dispels common nutrition myths and helps students learn why nutrition matters to everyone, not just athletes.

 

HEALTH
Despite increase in insurance coverage for depression, growth in spending remains modest
A new investigation published in JAMA Psychiatry finds that while insurance coverage for depression has increased, treatment rates are lower than expected, indicating that non-financial barriers to patient care still remain.

 

FACULTY
Two new basic science chairs reflect One Emory focus on collaborative research
Two new chairs in the basic sciences in Emory School of Medicine are the result of an effort to promote and support collaborative research among fundamental scientists across the university through the One Emory framework.
