Monday evening, Duke faculty held a town hall forum on the shooting and protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Faculty shared their perspectives and took questions from an audience of more than 300 people.

Duke researchers have found that orphaned children in institutions overseas can be as physically and emotionally healthy as those in family-care. This research challenges the view that institutional care results in negative effects on children. 

Finally, Duke University and Health System have been named by Carolina Parent as a top family-friendly place to work -- for the 14th consecutive year. Go Duke!
