In his new role as Associate Vice President for Development for the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, Alex Brown will provide leadership and strategic direction for the fundraising, alumni and constituent relations efforts for Emory University School of Medicine and Emory Healthcare, as well as continued leadership for the development operations in support of fundraising and alumni relations efforts for the Health Sciences Center. Brown has held key positions in Emory's Office of Development and Alumni Relations for the past 12 years.
"We are fortunate to have the talented leadership of Mary Ann Sprinkle and Alex Brown as we continue to grow momentum in the Woodruff Health Sciences Center," says Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, Emory executive vice president for health affairs, executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and president, CEO, and chairman of the board of Emory Healthcare. "Our ability to educate the next generation of health care providers and scientists, contribute new research discoveries that can save and prolong lives, and deliver the most advanced patient care are dependent on strong philanthropic support and the leadership of our development team.
