MOMENTUM, Winter 2000


From the Director



      Last Word


The Grady Crunch
Few understand the critical role Grady - with substantial involvement by Emory - plays in the health care of all Atlantans.

The Healing Fields
Each summer, students from Emory's physician assistant program and several family medicine residents help provide health care to thousands of migrant farm workers.

Getting into the Act
When a researcher's data was subpoenaed, Emory's Office of Governmental and Community Affairs advocated for changing state law to protect research confidentiality.

Moving Forward
New research findings; the closing of West Paces Medical Center; a go-ahead for Crawford Long Hospital's redevelopment; a new heart for the millennium.

On Point: Grady's Crisis is America's
Hundreds of thousands of people are suffering or dying because they can't pay for medications.
