About the fund
The Emory University School of Medicine community honors the life and memory of alumna and faculty member Alanna Carolyn McKelvey Stone 07PH 11M, who passed away on July 10th, 2017 after a brief battle with leukemia. Dr. Stone was a rising star in the Emory Division of General Medicine and Geriatrics and a renowned global health scholar.
To continue her legacy, Dr. Stone’s family has partnered with Emory University to establish the Alanna McKelvey Stone, MD, MPH Memorial Endowment for Medical Education. The goals of the endowment are to continue the work Dr. Stone had started, including support for research opportunities for residents in global health and development opportunities in medical education for residents and promising young faculty. In honor of Alanna’s commitment to medical education and her desire to leave a lasting legacy as a clinician educator, current and former internal medicine residents are coming together to increase funding for the endowed program established in her memory.
Why your support matters
Funds from the Alanna McKelvey Stone, MD, MPH Memorial Endowment for Medical Education will be immediately available to grow resident scholarship and research in global health, to provide life-changing experiences for new residents and another opportunity to share Alanna’s story. Additionally, funds will be used to support resident and faculty development in teaching and medical education. Our hope is for enough funds to be raised over the next three years to establish Emory’s first ever Clinician-Educator Fellowship in General Internal Medicine, named for Alanna. The fellowship will prepare fellows for faculty careers in academic general medicine. This endowment will not only benefit future residents at Emory and the School of Medicine faculty in perpetuity, it will also help to cement Alanna’s legacy as a physician, educator, and friend.
