Training the Responders

A health care team of dozens, from a Grady trauma surgeon to an Emory plastic surgeon, saved Sylvia Ennis’s life and got her back on her feet after a near-fatal impalement. The School of Medicine is training the next generation of physicians and specialists to provide team-based care that saves and improves lives.

Best Eating for Heart Health

As demonstrated by the leadership of Emory Heart and Vascular Center cardiologist Laurence Sperling in the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Diets rankings, the Emory Division of Cardiology is known for its expertise in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Research by the internationally recognized faculty has contributed to understanding new approaches to precision medicine, population-based health promotion, and disease prevention. To support exciting breakthroughs in heart health, contact Gabrielle Stearns, director of development for cardiology, at 404.727.2512 or gabrielle.stearns@emory.edu.

Pinning Down Difficult Diagnoses

Emory Special Diagnostic Services attracts patients with unusual and uncommon diseases that are difficult to diagnose or easy to misdiagnose. The clinical group also determines when typical diseases present in a way that is atypical.

Supporting Breakthrough Technology

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), which stimulates nerve cells in the brain with small bursts of MRI-strength magnetic energy, is helping patients with treatment-resistant depression find their way back to health. Neurologist Charles Epstein, founder/director of the Laboratory for Magnetic Stimulation at Emory, co-invented the core technology for NeuroStar TMS Therapy, the only TMS therapy approved by the FDA for treatment of depression.
