Educating the next generation of physicians, providing outstanding patient care, and determining the causes, treatments, and cures for devastating diseases form the central three-part mission of the Emory School of Medicine. Private support from friends has always been vital in helping the School of Medicine and the Department of Medicine achieve these goals. Today, in a changing healthcare environment, philanthropic support is critical to the continued fulfillment of our mission. Academic medical institutions are increasingly under siege as they struggle to fulfill their missions and provide breakthroughs in basic science and clinical applications, in serving historically under-served, in preparing tomorrow's health care providers to function effectively and compassionately, and in meeting the demands of technological change.
Philanthropic support provides the flexibility to initiate new research and to develop new training programs. These initiatives add to the body of knowledge concerning a broad range of medical conditions that impact the lives of the entire human population. Without the time for freedom of inquiry, the time to spend helping patients, the time to determine the cause of disease, who will search for these answers, explore the new possibilities for treatments, or find more effective ways to educate our students?
Your gift to the Department of Medicine at Emory will have an impact far beyond the Emory campus or the City of Atlanta. Your gift can touch the world, can help shape tomorrow's health care services, and can help find the answers to end suffering.
The Department of Medicine includes the following divisions: Cardiology; Digestive Diseases; Endocrinology; General Medicine; Geriatric Medicine & Gerontology; Hospital Medicine; Infectious Diseases; Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine; Renal Medicine; and Rheumatology.
Please contact me if you’d like to learn how you can support our research, education, and patient care programs. I look forward to hearing from you!
