Posted on Thursday, March 31, 2016

On Wednesday, March 30, the Atlanta Chapter of ARCS Foundation honored its Century level donors and above at its second annual Donor Appreciation Reception. Emory University President Jim Wagner and Debbie Wagner hosted the event at the Miller-Ward Alumni House on the Emory University campus. Attendees included current Emory University ARCS Scholars, advisors, and Dr. Michael Zwick, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Human Genetics and Pediatrics at Emory University, Assistant Dean of Research at the Emory University School of Medicine, and Assistant Vice President for Research at the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center. Dr. Zwick, an ARCS Scholar at the University of California at Davis during the 1997-1998 academic year, described the importance of the financial support and encouragement provided by ARCS Foundation to our nation's future scientists. Donors enjoyed the beautiful setting, the delicious refreshments and, most of all, having an opportunity to chat informally with ARCS Scholars, Emory University professors and administrators, and each other.
