Impact of COVID-19
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Duke Health Development and Alumni Affairs team is now working remotely, with rare exception. You may experience a delay in gift acknowledgements, and processing of gifts that arrive by mail may be delayed. Online gifts will be processed at the usual speed. Thank you for your patience as we adapt to our temporary work arrangement.
Advancing Health Together
We live in a time of unprecedented potential in biomedical science, education, technology, population and community health, and health care delivery. As one of the world’s foremost academic health enterprises, Duke Health integrates the Duke University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Nursing, Duke University Health System, and health programs across the university. Duke Health advances these frontiers through state-of-the-art clinical care, health promotion and disease prevention, breakthrough basic and clinical research, and educational experiences that prepare the next generation of health leaders. Every donor is an important partner in that work, and every gift plays a role in helping Duke Health and its constituent units advance health together.
Every gift to Duke Health supports the advancement of research and discovery to improve the health of our global community. We are fortunate to receive donations of all sizes as well as transformative donations made by alumni and friends, which we highlight here.
Thank you for your continuous support to Duke Health.

Mimicking the Placental...
The United States has one of the highest rates of preterm birth—up to 10 percent of all pregnancies—in the world. And many pregnancy complications, such as pre-eclampsia, which contributes to preterm birth, are associated with abnormal placental development.
According to Google Maps, the walking distance between Duke University School of Medicine and the Pratt School of Engineering is 0.8 miles, or about 1,800 steps. You can cover it in less than 15 minutes.
