Enhancing communications has been identified as a strategic imperative for the School of Medicine for FY17, and beyond. In response to faculty and staff member feedback, SOM leadership is especially focused on improving internal communications.

The Weekly Huddle will be sent out to all SOM faculty and staff members each week on Tuesday from officeofSOMdean@emory.edu. This weekly update from the Dean's Office will supplement the existing Emory Medicine newsletter and provide timely information in a consolidated format.

The Dean's Office welcomes your input and feedback as we continue to work toward enhancing SOM communications. Please contact our communications coordinator Elizabeth Johnson, if you have any questions, or need assistance submitting content for the Weekly Huddle.
