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.

Training Doctors at Atlanta's Historic 'Charity' Hospital

Emory's relationship with Grady Memorial Hospital — one of the largest public hospitals in the Southeast — began in the early 1900s, and today Grady is a main hub for clinical education of Emory medical students, residents, and fellows. Scholarships and fellowships help attract the highest achievers to train at Emory, and funding allows medical students the freedom to treat underserved people, explore new treatments, and expand their educational opportunities.

Redefining Psychiatric Treatment

Functional neurological disorder is one specialty of the Emory Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Its faculty are dedicated to the highest quality education of psychiatric residents and medical students, discovery of new knowledge of causes and treatments for psychiatric disorders, and integration of the latest advances in neuroscience, psychology, social sciences, and psychoanalysis. Donors help provide innovative and compassionate patient care, advance neuropsychiatric research, and support top faculty.
