Grady's Burn Center Man On Fire

Jalen Richardson survived a fiery motorcycle crash with the help of Emory physicians working Grady's Burn Center and was then guided on his long road to recovery by therapy dogs.

Why We Do It

At Grady, we encounter patients facing all manner of conditions who come from every type of race, background, socioeconomic status, and personal experience. Our faculty physicians are driven to serve them all, and to teach the next generation of doctors to approach medicine with cultural sensitivity, compassion, and humanity. One of our doctors shares her experiences in this story from her personal blog.

These programs help faculty become better teachers, provide advanced care for the Grady community, and lead the way in addressing society’s unmet healthcare needs.

Grady Hospital and Emory School of Medicine have evolved together, and their future is deeply rooted in our city. Watch a video that shows where we’ve come from and where we’re going.
