"Hand-off for Health" has been established to inform the Durham community that Duke Athletics — and in particular Duke Football — is a key partner to the Duke Children's mission of providing excellent health care of infants and children.
On Saturday, a tent will be located near the Kids' Zone on the north concourse of Wallace Wade Stadium to allow parents and their children to learn and interact with some key programs, including the Healthy Lifestyles program, Reach Out and Read, Child Development and Behavioral Health, and Durham SafeKids. In addition, there will be prize drawings during the game for children who visit the tent.
Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center, located in Durham, N.C., is nationally ranked among the best in pediatric health care programs. Caring for children is the number one priority, from routine check-ups and immunizations to the treatment of life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Duke Children's provides hope and the most advanced health care available.
Offering innovative procedures including stem cell and bone marrow transplants as well as a variety of support services for our patients and their families, Duke Children's cares for children from around the world. Duke Children's also is a critical local resource — taking care of 60 percent of Durham's children with over 70 percent of patients coming from central North Carolina.
