At the heart of the Duke Global Health Institute is the phrase 'global is local.' Global health faculty and students at Duke understand that health disparities not only exist internationally, but also here at home. Partnering with a variety of health organizations and U.S.-based universities, more than two dozen DGHI faculty lead studies in North Carolina and across the U.S. spanning a variety of topics, from clergy health and the HIV/AIDS crisis in the Deep South to obesity and mental health.
