More information about Final Jeopardy:
Emory University, located in Atlanta, Georgia, was founded in 1836. Emory’s healthcare system is the largest in Georgia, comprising seven major hospitals. Both the American Cancer Society and the CDC are headquartered near the Emory campus. Robert F. Woodruff, chairman of the board of Coca-Cola at the time, orchestrated the “gift” from Emory to the CDC, as he was concerned about malaria control. Atlanta had been chosen due to its central location in the South (most of the malaria was concentrated in that area of the country at that time).
