Golden Living Center donates to Brody School of Medicine

By Doug Boyd

Golden Living Center has donated $112,079 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 on MacGregor Downs Road.

Hal Garland, executive director of the local Golden Living Center, presented the check Aug. 9 to Dr. Kenneth Steinweg, chair of the Department of Family Medicine; Dr. Paul Cunningham, dean of the Brody School of 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.

Golden Living Center’s new 72,000-square-foot facility houses 152 residents.

This year is the 29th the center has supported the teaching project.
