IMPACT
Serving students who served
Building on extensive service to veterans through health care and legal aid, Emory increases outreach and support for veterans as undergraduate and graduate students.

 

COLLABORATION
Atlanta Falcons pledge $200,000 for cancer research
The Atlanta Falcons are pledging an annual donation of $200,000 to Emory's Winship Cancer Institute to support its cancer research programs.

 

PERSPECTIVE
Iron Curtain's consequences still evident for former West Germany
The border that split post-war Germany has long fascinated scholars who explored its impact on the Communist East. Emory historian Astrid Eckert's new book flips that narrative, examining the lasting consequences for what was West Germany.

 

GROWTH
Emory Johns Creek Hospital breaks ground on expansion
Construction on two new floors will soon begin at EJCH. The new area, which will include 40 additional patient beds, is expected to open in April 2021.

 

PARTNERSHIP
Emory Healthcare becomes official health care provider of College Park Skyhawks
The College Park Skyhawks, the new NBA G League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks, have named Emory Healthcare as the official team health care provider.

APPRECIATION
Honor donors on EmoryThanks Day
Donors touch every facet of Emory by supporting research initiatives, program expansions, student scholarships and much more. Show your appreciation when students, faculty, staff and the entire Emory community come together for the fourth annual EmoryThanks on Thursday, Nov. 14.
