Women's club calendar begins Sept. 16
When the Emory Women's Club was founded in 1919, the University consisted of a few buildings dotting the countryside at its recently relocated Atlanta campus.
The club was organized originally to foster social interaction among faculty and provide service to the University. While these two purposes are still important today, the EUWC also actively participates in the Atlanta community. Since the late '70s, the Houston Mill House has served as the club's base of operation.
Members of EUWC may be members or spouses of active and emeriti faculty, staff, Board of Visitors members, Glenn Church staff or work for affliates of the University, including the American Cancer Society and the CDC.
The EUWC holds monthly meetings during the academic year, and the club is responding the changing needs of its diverse membership by holding day and evening events. Free child care is provided at each meeting.
The EUWC holds its annual fall tea on Sept. 16 to welcome returning, new and prospective members. The tea will be at Lullwater from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and JoAn Chace will speak.
On Tuesday, Sept. 23, the club will hold a membership meeting from 10 a.m. to noon at Houston Mill House. Berta Laney will be the guest speaker.
New ad campaign for Emory Healthcare
On Aug. 18 Emory Healthcare debuted an advertising campaign to introduce its new name and logo. The campaign theme is "Emory Healthcare: A world of knowledge close to home."
"This theme focuses on the recently adopted number one strategic plan objective [of Emory Healthcare], which is to capitalize on differentiation," said Michael Johns, executive vice president for health affairs. The theme will be used in all advertising and is "designed to communicate the depth of resources-research, specialty care and primary care-available to all who live and work in the Southeast," Johns said. Three television commercials will be shot on campus, and each will highlight a different aspect of Emory health care.
The advertising campaign runs through October and includes extensive television, radio and print coverage.
