Windows of Opportunity

If you've been touched by the stories in this issue of Emory Magazine, 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 found in these pages and beyond. Gifts to Emory produce powerful, lasting returns; they help create knowledge, advance research, strengthen communities, improve health, and much more.

Expanding Global Health

The Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) is making the world healthier through research, global partnerships, and education. You can be a part of this valuable work by supporting EGHI programs that improve health in your community and around the world. The many giving opportunities at EGHI include the Field Scholars Awards Program, which combines academic study with practical field experience to train a new generation of global health leaders. To learn more about supporting EGHI, contact Roseanne Waters at 404.712.8524 or

Raising Lewis's Legacy

After an anonymous donor pledged $1.5 million to establish a professorship honoring civil rights pioneer John Lewis, Emory Law committed to raise an additional $500,000 to elevate the position to a chair. The John Lewis Chair in Civil Rights and Social Justice will support a distinguished scholar who will contribute to the diversity of the law school faculty. For more information, contact Director of Development Robert Jackson at 404.727.5773 or

Iluminating Rare Books 

Seeking new insights in the oldest of books, scholars like Daniel Wechsler 90C treasure Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL). In 2016, Emory will host “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare,” a national traveling exhibition of Shakespeare’s First Folio. To support scholarship at MARBL, contact Emory Libraries Director of Development and Alumni Relations Alex Wan at 404.727.5386 or

Unrestricted gifts support transportation, lodging, and meals for out-of-town veterans receiving intensive treatment; prescription medications or co-pays to eliminate financial barriers to care; and alternative treatment options. Find out more from Courtney Harris, director of development for neurosciences, at 404.727.5282 or courtney.harris@
