Unity Month packs diversity of events
The University celebrates its community’s diversity with a variety of Unity Month programs throughout November.

Dance, music, discussions, contests, film screenings are among the events planned for almost every day of November, which highlight the different cultures within the community. There will also be two balls, the Unity Ball on Nov. 22, a “Red Carpet Affair” and the Pink Ball for Breast Cancer on Nov. 30.

Worth a flu shot
Flu shots continue through Dec. 11. Eleven opportunities remain for the preventative shots, free for faculty and staff and for students enrolled in the Emory Student Health Insurance Plan.

Faculty and staff are asked to bring their Emory IDs and if enrolled in an Emory health plan, their insurance cards for tracking purposes. Students need their Emory IDs as well as their Aetna Student Health Insurance card.

No appointments are needed. Check locations and times at fsap.emory.edu or contact the Faculty Staff Assistance Program at 404-727-4328.

Wellness programs chief Eddie Gammill says, “Getting a flu shot is one of the most beneficial ways to avoid the flu. This preventative measure helps to ensure that workplaces, homes and communities stay healthy during this season.”
