Golden Living Center Makes Donation to Family Medicine

By Doug Boyd

Golden Living Center has donated $110,166 to the Department of Family Medicine at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University to support the department’s nursing home teaching project.

The department provides primary medical care for the residents of the local Golden Living facility near the medical school.

Hal Garland, executive director of the local Golden Living Center, presented the check Aug. 14 to Dr. Kenneth Steinweg, chairman of the Department of Family Medicine; Dr. Tae Joon Lee, medical director at Golden Living Center; and Maria Knupp, a family nurse practitioner in the family medicine department’s geriatric division.

The money will be used to support the instruction of family medicine residents and fellows in geriatrics and to help pay for salaries and teaching materials for the program.

This year is the 28th the center has supported the teaching project.
