Sporting “This patient thinks Emory Healthcare ROCKS!” in the Peachtree Road Race, patient family advisor Mary Hendrix shows her support Emory Healthcare as she ran on July 4. Hendrix is one of more than 50 patient family advisors who help Emory Healthcare plan, deliver and evaluate services to improve the patient and family experience.

More than 1,500 Emory University and Emory Healthcare employees and family members participated in 40th annual 10K race. Emory Healthcare has helped sponsor the 10K race since 1993, recognizing the value of staying fit as an integral part of the total health equation. As a part of its support for the event, Emory Healthcare hosted a booth at the Peachtree Road Race Health and Wellness pre-race expo on July 2-3 to promote EHC services.
