From the Director

Our chiefs are awesome – fun Halloween jeopardy and a chance to 2-ply mummify! The best. 

Also, what a great weekend! Beautiful weather, Narcisse kids going to the Pumpkin Patch and of course a PHENOMENAL 10th Annual STEAD TREAD 5k to benefit Lincoln Community Health Center! Turnout was tremendous, the course was great, and the kickoff speeches by Dr. Kristen Ito (Duke IM Alum and LCHC  attending) and our very own Ryan Duffy were inspiring! So many thanks to our colleagues across Duke and Lincoln who came out to support.
