Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine at the Brody School of Medicine, East Carolina University. Our faculty and staff are committed to the highest standards of teaching and patient care.
Golden Living Center has awarded the Golden Living Teaching Nursing Home Grant of $125,000 to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University to support a nursing home teaching project. Hal Garland, executive director of the local center, presented the donation to Dr. Chelley Alexander, chair of the Department of Family Medicine at Brody. Faculty members supporting the project include Dr. Kenneth Steinweg, Dr. Renee Banaszak and Terry Icard.
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.
Brody's Department of Family Medicine provides primary medical care for the residents of the local Golden Living Center on MacGregor Downs Road. The 72,000-square-foot facility houses 152 residents.
This is the 34th year that the center has supported the teaching project with cumulative support totaling more than $2.5 million.
