A lifelong Atlanta resident, Alex Cooley grew up around the Morningside and Glen Iris neighborhoods near Emory. Whenever anyone in his family needed medical care, "It's always been Emory," he says.

"It's always been Emory."

He credits Emory with saving his vision and his life. In gratitude, Cooley made a bequest to support the Emory Eye Center and the Division of Cardiology at Emory School of Medicine. The gift honors retina specialist Baker Hubbard, who treated Cooley when complications of diabetes threatened his sight, and cardiologist Garard McGorisk, who Cooley says saved his life after a heart attack.

"I feel like I owe a debt for everything they've done for me."
