The Emory Healthcare 500 is a truly special event. Not only is it a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race event, but it’s taking place on Labor Day weekend, and brings together a broad community with a wide variety of interests. Despite the the multifaceted nature of the Emory Healthcare 500 team, members of this community have more in common than meets the eye. Doctors and race teams alike work tirelessly in high pressure situations each and every day. Furthermore, physicians, nurses, drivers, race teams and all of the individuals that come together to organize an event such as the Emory Healthcare 500 must work together in collaboration to accomplish a common goal, often with limited time and resources. The Emory Healthcare 500 is an event that allows us to celebrate the constant effort and energy these groups of people put into making the communities in which we live a better place.
To help us celebrate the teams involved and the community that will be in attendance next weekend, we have launched a special website dedicated not only to the Emory Healthcare 500 race, but also to our community’s medical advances and overall health and wellness. This special site can be found at http://www.emoryhealthcare.org/500.
The Emory Healthcare 500 website features 500 unique and interesting facts ranging from tidbits such as “Did you know the 200 millionth American was born at Emory University Hospital Midtown?” to tips for how to spot cancer at home.
We welcome your feedback on the new site (feel free to leave a reply below) and look forward to seeing our Emory Healthcare, Atlanta Motor Speedway, and Georgia communities this weekend for the biggest Labor Day party in Atlanta.
