Green space being dedicated to Dr. Ray Greenberg

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A green space is being dedicated on the Medical University of South Carolina campus in honor of departing president Dr. Ray Greenberg.

The area called the Greenberg Greenway is scheduled to be dedicated at the Charleston school on Friday. The dedication honors Greenberg for his work in promoting wellness on the campus.

Greenberg, who has served as president since 2000, helped created a tobacco-free campus as well as a smoke-free medical district in the area where MUSC and other hospitals are located. He also helped create an urban farm, a medicinal garden and an arboretum on campus.

Greenberg is leaving at the end of the month to become top administrator in the University of Texas System, which has four medical schools.
