Sterk's leadership, Emory has more than 31,000 full-time employees in the metro area and 37,716 in total.

IMPACT

RESEARCH
Routine blood test could lead to earlier diabetes diagnosis
The results of random plasma glucose tests could help physicians identify individuals at high risk for type 2 diabetes earlier than is normally done, according to Emory research published this week in the journal PLOS ONE.

NUTRITION
Study highlights need for real-time energy balance
The type and quantity of food you eat isn't all that matters to your body: when you eat can also help strike the best balance between energy consumed and energy burned during exercise, according to researchers with Emory's Center for the Study of Human Health and Rollins School of Public Health.
