School of Medicine Hidden Gems

In 2015, the Emory Medicine Recognitions Committee instituted the Hidden Gem award. These faculty members have been nominated by their departments in recognition of their outstanding, but often unnoticed or unrecognized, contributions to Emory or beyond. In partnership with Emory Communications we have started producing a video series to highlight these faculty.
