"The Office of Community Relations at DUHS now provides a very important link for Duke and the Community. It is a window of information for the community to how Duke works, and provides presence and opportunities for very important partnerships between the City and County of Durham with DUHS."
Mayor Bill Bell
City of Durham
"Duke Medicine and the Durham County Health Department collaborate on several projects including the Health Assessment for Durham County, which offers a unique perspective into the specific health challenges and strengths of the Durham community.
"Together with Duke Medicine’s Dr. Robert Califf, I co-chair the Durham Health Innovations (DHI) Oversight Committee, part of a synergistic model to improve the health of Durham’s citizens.
"As one of the original planners of the Durham Health Summit along with The Office of Community Relations, I have watched it evolve over the past decade. The audience has grown exponentially as we continue to spotlight and address the need to offer innovative solutions to improve our health.
"Our continued collaboration is imperative as we work collectively with Durham’s citizens to create a healthy Durham."
Gayle Harris, Director
Durham County Health Department
