Welcome to the Duke Division of Community Health, a division in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at the Duke University School of Medicine. On behalf of the Duke University Health System and Duke University School of Medicine, the Duke Division of Community Health engages community members, practitioners, and organizations in service, research, and education to improve community and population health.
The Division of Community Health began in 1996 as the Office of Primary Care Initiatives; it formally became a division in 1998. The division has launched and currently operates more than 47 collaborative, community-based clinical, care management, educational, and research initiatives across six North Carolina counties. These counties include Durham, Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance, and Warren. The division is staffed by more than 125 employees employed in such diverse positions as community health worker, registered dietician, research analyst, and health educator, among many others.
The Duke Division of Community Health integrates research, education, and service delivery to improve health equity and access. Our collaborative, community-engaged work utilizes evidence-based practices, primary care research, informatics, high-quality health services, and the passion of our team members to improve health with communities.
