Introducing the WLA Class of 2017

One of the first things I learned when I arrived at Emory last February is that a favorite quote of mine was also a favorite of our namesake and benefactor, Robert W. Woodruff: "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."

In the past 10 months, I've learned much more about Emory and the Woodruff Health Sciences Center—most notably, that we have an extraordinary team here who believes and lives that philosophy.

This month, we celebrate what would have been Mr. Woodruff's 127th birthday, and I can't think of a better time to honor the faculty and staff who embody his principles of leadership and service, making our every success possible. You keep Mr. Woodruff's memory alive, and he would be proud of the work you are doing in research, education, and patient care.

Another group that embodies Mr. Woodruff's commitment to personal and professional growth is the 2017 Woodruff Leadership Academy Fellows (below). The selection process for this intensive, five-month leadership program is rigorous, and those selected as WLA Fellows represent some of the most promising leaders within the Woodruff Health Sciences Center.

Congratulations and best of luck to the WLA Class of 2017! I look forward to working with them in the year ahead to continue advancing Mr. Woodruff's enduring legacy.

And thanks to all of you for all that you do. I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.
