Celebrating Diversity Month
JOIN US IN CELEBRATING DIVERSITY 365. Nationally, April is Celebrate Diversity Month—but here at Duke Health, we celebrate our diversity 365 days a year. We’ve made diversity one of our core values because we know it’s the source of our strength. Being able to draw upon a rich blend of ideas and perspectives is what makes us a world-class institution.
