Always on our mind. . .
You've probably said it yourself: "If only I had more time. . .."
Here at Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center, we feel much the same way. We're working 24 hours a day, seven days a week toward a healthier world through research, education, and patient care.
But if there were more hours in a day, more days in a week, we could do even more—because the fact is, there's nothing we'd rather be doing. Making and keeping people healthy is both our vocation and our passion.
From the health professionals who work tirelessly to heal the sick and to keep the rest healthy, to the educators who create innovative programs across the breadth of the health sciences, to the trail-blazing scientists who work to prevent disease before it even starts, the Woodruff Health Sciences Center is dedicated—all day, every day—to the people we serve.
The stories in this year's Community Benefits Report represent just a few examples among the thousands we see each year. If only we could have eight days a week to do even more we gladly would, because making people healthy is always on our mind.
