Duke has long been considered among the top providers of healthcare in the country. Now, we are embarking on a journey to fully embrace the many resources, benefits, and services we provide within our own community to become among the healthiest organizations, too.
The Duke Healthy Campus initiative will engage students, faculty, and staff across the Duke community to help each of us live healthier, improve our quality of life, and realize our full human potential.
Duke Healthy Campus will focus on five core areas:
- Food & Nutrition,
- Mental & Emotional Wellbeing,
- Physical Activity & Movement,
- Fulfillment & Purpose, and
- Environment & Culture.
You are at the center of this initiative, and we need your participation and engagement to make it successful. Too often we take our health and wellbeing for granted until we have to deal with some health issue that limits our ability to do normal activities. Then we realize how central our health and wellbeing are to everything we hope to achieve in our personal, academic, and professional lives.
More information will be shared in the fall when the initiative will be formally introduced.
