DGHI is grateful to Duke President Richard Brodhead for his vision in establishing our institute 10 years ago, understanding well the important role Duke could play in solving complex health challenges, educating and training future global health leaders, and advancing health equity around the globe. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

"I would underscore the importance of bringing a broad swath of people to collaborate with and listen to ideas, realizing that the best idea will come from the input of many people.” According to DGHI assistant professor Jerry Bloomfield, collaboration is critical in global health. #DGHIwisdom
