The Brody Legacy
The Brody Medical Scholars program was established by the Brody family of Kinston and Greenville, North Carolina, as part of its long-standing commitment to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.
Beginning with a generous gift to East Carolina University to help establish the medical school, the Brody family has steadfastly supported medical education at ECU and remains one of the school’s most dedicated friends.
The Brody Scholars program honors J. S. “Sammy” Brody, who died in 1994. He and his brother, Leo, were among the earliest supporters of medical education in eastern North Carolina. The legacy continues through the dedicated efforts of Hyman Brody and David Brody. Subsequent gifts through the Brody Foundation have enabled the medical school to educate new physicians, conduct important research, and improve health care in eastern North Carolina.
