COMMITMENT
All hands on deck: Staff exhibit ‘can-do’ spirit and enduring sense of community
While the usually bustling Emory campus is now quiet, thousands of staff members are working tirelessly behind the scenes to help the university continue its academic and health care missions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

CONTRIBUTIONS
Emory Healthcare launches drive-through donation site for critical COVID-19 supplies
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Georgia, Emory Healthcare has launched a drive-through donation site as part of a larger effort to address the shortage of personal protective equipment and supplies that are critical for front-line health care workers tackling the virus.

 

RESEARCH
Reusable respirators a potential alternative for protecting health care workers from COVID-19
The shortage of disposable N95 respirator masks is a serious concern for front line-health care workers. A study by Emory physician Colleen Kraft finds that a reusable alternative to the N95 mask is just as effective.

ACHIEVEMENT
Emory's Class of 2024: Extraordinary students in extraordinary times
As they finish their senior year sheltering at home, 5,925 high school students learned March 25 that they are the final students admitted to Emory's Class of 2024. Leaders inside and outside the classroom, they are among the most academically talented students in the world.
