Brock Family Supports Research, Patient Care

The Brocks

John and Mary Brock have a long history of support for the health sciences at Emory.

John Brock, chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, his wife, Mary, and their three children are supporting the health sciences at Emory University with two gifts totaling $1 million.

The Brocks have committed $500,000 to support advances in Emory School of Medicine. This gift will establish the John and Mary Brock Diagnostic and Discovery Fund, which will help Emory researchers and physicians bring discoveries from the lab to the clinic, where they can make a difference for patients, and create ways to measure their success.

The family also has given $500,000 to establish the Brock Family Child and Adolescent Mood Disorders Program (CAMP) Fund, which allows treatment of children whose parents are unable to afford clinical services. The fund has become integral to the success of the program.

CAMP includes training for Emory undergraduate and graduate students, medical residents, and postdoctoral fellows representing the next generation of leaders in child and adolescent psychiatry.

The Brocks, who also have supported Winship Cancer Institute and Georgia Institute of Technology, have philanthropic interests that center on innovative research and translational medicine.
