Autumn 2009: Campaign Chronicle
Marcus Foundation Helps Emory Care for Children
Campaign Emory Website
A commitment of $3.3 million by the Marcus Foundation will continue funding for six faculty leadership positions that have transformed Emory School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics. The foundation’s ongoing support will fund the Marcus Professorships for five years. The professorships have helped recruit nationally recognized leaders who have strengthened their divisions, resulting in a period of enormous growth in the department’s academic and clinical programs.
Marcus professors in pulmonology, infectious diseases, nephrology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and neonatology are building strong programs in clinical care, teaching, and research. These talented scholars and physicians have spearheaded extraordinary progress in strengthening patient care for the region’s children.
