The Ebola Faculty and Community Forum — a semester-long, multidisciplinary series backed by all nine schools that make up Emory — begins Jan. 26 with a panel discussion of "Ebola: Past and Present in the U.S. and West Africa."
The conversation is free and open to all who wish to attend. It takes place from 4-6 p.m. at Candler School of Theology’s Rita Ann Rollins Building, room 252. Attendees are asked to RSVP to email@example.com.
The forum is co-chaired by the SON's Dr. Deborah Bruner.
Last month, SON faculty member and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Nurse Faculty Scholar, Dr. Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, tuned in to the White House website to listen to President Obama deliver a speech on early childhood education. In his speech, Obama singled out a Georgia program co-led by Darcy-Mahoney that aims to narrow disparities in academic achievement by increasing exposure to language for babies from low-income families.
"Georgia," the president said, "is building on their successful preschool program by launching something called Talk With Me Baby, which sounds like an Al Green song but...is actually a program to make sure language learning begins at the very first weeks of a child's life."
The annual Health Care Career Fair gives Emory nursing students the opportunity to connect with health care recruiters from across the region. All Emory nursing students and alumni are invited to participate.
