Windows of opportunity

Story Photo

If you've been touched by a story or stories in this issue of Emory Medicine, these windows can open up ways for you to turn your inspiration into action.

Here you'll see how you can invest in the people, places, and programs you're reading about. Gifts to Emory produce powerful, lasting returns: they help create knowledge, advance research, strengthen communities, improve health, and much more.


Leading the Way in Transplant Surgery

The Emory Transplant Center continues to break new ground in care and research for patients. In February 2017 center surgeons performed Georgia’s first HIV-positive kidney transplant, and the center’s liver transplant program was ranked first in the state—and second nationally—for the high quality of patient outcomes.

To invest in the life-saving work of the Emory Transplant Center, contact Amanda Miles, director of development, at 404.727.5124 or


Body, Heal Thyself

The Emory Department of Orthopaedics is on the forefront of cell-based therapy, and the primary goal is to improve outcomes for patients with musculoskeletal illnesses and injuries. This work is driven by philanthropy. Donor gifts support the most promising research ideas while they are still in the very early stages of development—too early to secure major grants from the National Institutes of Health and elsewhere. Gifts enable researchers to gather the data required by those competitive funding sources.

Training the Best Primary Care Doctors

By preparing the next generation of practitioners to provide high-quality primary care, the Paul W. Seavey Comprehensive Internal Medicine Clinic is helping Georgia deal with a serious shortage of physicians. Six Georgia counties have no family physician at all, and more than half of the state’s doctors are over age 50, reports the Georgia Board for Physician Workforce.
