Summer ... vacation?

Have we really not updated EAAvesdropping since May? Dang ... I'm sorry about that. It's not like there isn't anything going on here at the EAA or with Emory alumni. In fact, the next couple of weeks are packed with alumni activity.

If you like flowers in the Southeast, this weekend is for you. On June 12-13, the Emory Alumni Board is meeting at Callaway Gardens near Pine Mountain, Ga. On Sunday, June 14, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens will host more than 50 Emory guests to pay homage to the University's Lullwater Day tradition. EAAvesdropping loves flowers, so we'll be at both events. Don't miss our updates!

EAAvesdropping also loves lawyers, and Emory law alumni in Houston (June 18) and Dallas (June 19) will be busy hosting Richard Freer, Robert Howell Hall Professor of Law.

And for whoever's in New England on Thursday, June 25, the EAA will be hosting Faculty Destinations: Boston, featuring Justin Remais, assistant professor of environmental and global health, and director, Global Environmental Health Program in the Rollins School of Public Health. The intriguing title of his talk, A Snail in the Sun: Global Climate Change and Infectious Disease in China and Beyond, should be enough to draw a great crowd.

More than 3,500 Emory alumni live in the six New England states. The Red Sox are on the road, so what else is there to do but head to the Back Bay Hotel for Faculty Destinations? A 6:30 p.m. reception with Dr. Remais will kick off the evening; the lecture will follow one hour later.

These are just a few examples of what's going on in the Emory alumni world. For the most comprehensive list of alumni activities, visit the EAA's event calendar.

Keep reading EAAvesdropping, too. Vacation is so over ... lots of event updates are coming and we have three new interns you'll be meeting really soon. Have a great weekend!
