IMPACT
The learning fields
Emory is home to two successful migrant health programs. Both can be life-changing for students and farmworkers alike. See how students in the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the School of Medicine's Physician Assistant Program find life-changing experiences in the fields.

 

CAMPUS
Sustainability grants fund green projects across Emory
From creating fun events to motivate students to take MARTA to piloting reusable metal needles in a chemistry lab, projects funded by the latest grants from Emory's Office of Sustainability Initiatives support conservation and social justice on Emory's campuses.

 

ARTS
Visiting artist Sara Juli takes on motherhood's taboo topics
Sara Juli visits Emory this week to present her solo performance "Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis," using humor to explore "all that is awesome and all that sucks" when it comes to being a mother.

COMMUNITY
World AIDS Day events feature Quilt on the Quad, free HIV testing
Emory will recognize World AIDS Day this week with two campus events intended to draw attention to the worldwide fight against HIV, support people living with the virus, and honor those whose lives have been claimed by AIDS.

 

HEALTH
Researchers assess frequency of head injury, evaluation in 2018 World Cup
To evaluate concussion assessment and management during the 2018 World Cup, physicians at Emory and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York analyzed video footage of all 64 matches of the tournament, identifying any possible concussion events.

 

COLLABORATION
Clarkston Summit lays foundation for deeper community engagement
More than 250 members of the Clarkston refugee and immigrant communities, Emory and Georgia State University researchers and volunteers, and community organizations met recently at GSU's Clarkston campus to learn from each other and plan future collaborations.

EVENTS
Emory campus traditions celebrate the holiday season
