Dinner served for a good cause
Let your taste buds come out for a good cause: The Metabolic Nutrition Program is having a Charity Dine Out for its Metabolic Camp at Doc Chey’s Emory Village on Tuesday, Aug. 25 from 5–10 p.m.

The restaurant will donate 15 percent of each customer’s dinner bill to the camp, which is presented by the Emory Genetics Metabolic Nutrition Program.

“We had our 15th annual camp on June 22–27 and already need to begin to raise funds for 2010,” says Rosalynn R. Borlaza, coordinator for the program, which is in the Division of Medical Genetics.
