IMPACT
Video: Coronavirus and Emory
In a special message about coronavirus, President Claire E. Sterk, students and staff reflect on the personal impact of the global health crisis, encouraging everyone at Emory to remember that “you are part of a community of care” with resources available if you need them.

COMMUNITY

"The outbreak of the novel coronavirus is a reminder of how connected we are as a global community," notes President Sterk, emphasizing Emory's support for Chinese students, researchers and faculty who are concerned for friends and family back home.
