Pam Auchmutey

Senior Associate Director, Health Sciences Publications

Pam Auchmutey is the editor of Emory Nursing and Public Health magazines for alumni. She has more than 25 years of experience at Emory, having served as editor and writer for the campus newspaper, Emory Report, and as publications manager for the Carter Center. During her five years with the center, Pam produced a variety of projects for its peace and health programs.

Auchmutey began her career as a copyeditor with The Macon News, where she learned the ins and outs of journalism starting with obituaries and weather and subsequently editing features, business, and front-page news. She was working in Macon when Elvis Presley died and still has her copy of the newspaper's "Elvis Edition."

After settling in Atlanta, Auchmutey wrote for and edited magazines for the Presbyterian Church in the U.S., sporting goods retailers, commercial architects, and the paint and coatings industry. She joined Emory in 1981, shortly after philanthropists Robert and George Woodruff made their historic $105 million gift and has watched the university grow and thrive as a result.

In 2011, Auchmutey received a Grand Award of Excellence for Public Health magazine from the southeastern district of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. She is past president of the Southeast chapter of the American Medical Writers Association. Auchmutey holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Georgia State University. She loves animals in all shapes and sizes, trying new restaurants, and traveling with her husband Jim, a longtime former feature writer with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
