The Davison Council service committee, led by the VP of Service, promotes service opportunities in the medical school, at Duke, and in the Durham community. In addition, the service committee provides student organizations with financial support for ongoing service events. Twice a year, the service committee organizes Duke in Durham Day, a day for graduate students across Duke to perform several hours of service at multiple sites. The service committee also runs the application process for the Chancellor’s Service Fellowship, a one-year multidisciplinary, mentored fellowship open to any Duke health professional student(s) that is focused on health-related community service and leadership development. Not to mention, the service committee acts as a liaison for ongoing service opportunities both at Duke and in the surrounding community. Click the links below to find out more about each of these!
Letter from VP of Service
I am excited to serve as your VP of Service for the 2020-2021 school year! As we all know, things look a bit different this year, and I am looking forward to collaborating with the many wonderful existing service efforts at Duke to find creative solutions to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. My hope for your service experience at Duke is that it deepens your connection with your peers and especially your connection with the Durham community. To that end, I welcome any feedback or thoughts you might have. We are all humbly learning and adjusting, and I would love to hear from you. I encourage you to learn more about the community of Durham and how to sustainably engage with Durham during your time here.
Hadley Reid, MS3+
VP of Service 2020-21
