MOMENTUM, Fall 1999


From the Director



      Last Word

Regenesis: Renewing medical education at Emory
Emory School of Medicine isn't resting on its laurels. Strategic plan in hand, the school is launching an ambitious effort to reinvent its programs, build a new home, and reward faculty and students.

What makes Joel Felner so good?
Cardiologist Joel Felner's reach as a teacher, role model, and mentor is irrefutable.

Virtual Doc
Emory is about to go web-to-web with the giants of health care cyberspace, with information for consumers, medical resources for clinicians, an interactive personal health manager, and a referral mechanism.

A New Voice for Nursing
The considerable expertise of Marla Salmon, new CEO of the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, is already making waves on campus.

Moving Forward
More top rankings; national study on blood-thinning medication; HIV vaccine for monkeys; reducing financial pressure on The Emory Clinic.

On Point: Youth, Firearms, and Violence
Spending money on technology does little to enhance school safety, says Arthur Kellermann, director of the Emory Center for Injury Control.
