Working side by side

Few people in Atlanta's history have ever made such a lasting impact as our center's namesake, Robert W. Woodruff. It was largely his vision, leadership, kindness, and generosity that helped make Atlanta a dynamic, world-class city with a highly diverse and rapidly growing population.

That dynamic population brings increasingly complex health challenges to which no one medical professional can possibly have all the answers. Instead, modern health and healing require interdisciplinary, interprofessional teams working side by side across education, research, and clinical care to most effectively prevent and treat disease.

Working side by side harnesses the extraordinary talents of our medical professionals, educators, and investigators to improve quality of life for all the people we serve. Through the collective efforts and dedication of our entire Woodruff Health Sciences Center, we provide value to our patients and our community and help ensure continued health and well-being for the city, the state, the region, and beyond.
