GREENVILLE, N.C.  (July 24, 2012)  —  Golden Living Center has donated $118,000 to the Department of Family Medicine at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University to support the department’s teaching nursing home 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 last week to Dr. Paul Cunningham, dean of the Brody School of Medicine; Dr. Kenneth Steinweg, chair of the Department of Family Medicine; Dr. Tae Joon Lee, medical director at Golden Living Center and clinical assistant professor of family medicine at ECU; 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 resident physicians and geriatric fellows, faculty salaries and teaching materials. Medical, pharmacy and physician assistant students also go to Golden Living Center for clinical learning.

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

This year is the 31st the center has supported the teaching project.
