Window Into Winship

This week we take you behind the scenes of what will be the new Winship Phase I Clinical Trials Unit, which is expected to open by the end of the year. It's starting out as a big, unfinished space in the Emory University Hospital Tower. Nurses, clinicians, patients, and administrators planned out how the new unit should look and then an entire cardboard model of their plan was built. Here they are making suggestions for improved designs after touring the model.
