As part of Duke Health, the Office of Community Relations (OCR) strives to improve health care and health care access by partnering with community groups and agencies. The OCR helps to inform the public about Duke Health programs and initiatives by maintaining liaisons with local and regional civic leaders, local government agencies, and civic organizations as well as grass roots and faith based organizations.

We are responsive and supportive of efforts to improve health outcomes by serving on various community boards and committees.  Below is a partial list of the organizations and initiatives that we partner with:

  • Durham’s Partnership for Children
