Curbing Bleeding Disorders


For more than 40 years, Emory has served as a hub for Georgia families seeking the latest discoveries in hemophilia treatment and benign blood disorder research. The Emory/Children’s Healthcare Hemophilia Treatment Center is one of the largest programs of its kind in the country, and gene therapy research is expected to lessen patients’ need for frequent treatments.

Caring for Women at Midlife


As life expectancy rises, many women will spend 40 percent or more of their lives after menopause. The Emory Midlife and Menopause Medical Center helps women navigate this transition and make their postmenopausal lives long and healthy. Emory is among a small number of elite academic medical centers in the nation—and the only one in the Southeast—with a program focused on menopause and how it affects women’s health.
