Virginia Lee Franklin earned a master's degree in nursing from Emory University in 1957 and taught surgical nursing at Emory's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. To honor her after her death in 1981, her parents D. Murray and Katherine Franklin created the Virginia Lee Franklin Memorial Trust. In the spirit of Virginia's commitment to teaching and to the specialty of neurology, the trust supports an annual conference dedicated to the advancement of neuroscience teaching, research and practice.


The Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University is an academic health science and service center focused on missions of teaching, research, health care and public service.
