  • Under Dr. Webb's leadership, the Department of Physiology has donated toys to the Children’s Hospital of Georgia for eighteen years in a row.  This year, our department donated over thirty toys to the Children's hospital.  Dr. Webb used to don a Santa cap and a member of his lab would dress up as an elf and bring the toys down to the Children’s Hospital.  The garb may have changed over the years, however the generosity of his team has not.  Thank you to everyone who contributed!
