What's In a Name?

Center for Emergency Care

When asked about the history of the name “Center for Emergency Care” Dr. Richard Levy, the founding force for change both locally and nationally, shared a story.  I can answer the question, but can’t help from wondering if some things are not better left in the fog of war. As much as I’d like it, the name was not a result of deep thinking or critical analysis. It was more a matter of reacting to the circumstances at the time.

Dr. Adeoye receives the largest NIH grant in department history

Dr. Adeoye and his team just received the Largest NIH grant in department history ever seen by this department in our history.  A grant is not a gift, a grant is an investment in an investigator and their team with an explicit goal of answering a question of value to the individual or organization giving the grant. Clearly the NIH has tremendous faith in Dr. Adeoye and his research team since they are willing to invest almost 30 Million dollars in his work.
