Congratulations to Dr. K.M. Venkat Narayan! He was recently elected to the National Academy of Medicine's (NAM) 2016 class. Election to the NAM is one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. This year's addition of Dr. Narayan and Dr. Deborah Bruner (School of Nursing), puts Emory's membership at 27 (nine of which come from the Hubert Department of Global Health)!
