Emmes means truth

Emmes means truth in Hebrew, and our mission is to search for truth in public health issues. Our visual identity reflects our commitment to collaboration. The original logo of the delta and sigma represent our math and scientific roots… And the current torch logo projects Truth. Discovery. Shedding light on important public health problems throughout the world. It’s a powerful visual symbol of our past, present and future.
