A Room Full Of Heroes

A Room Full Of Heroes Heroes are creating Duke's new Comprehensive Cancer Center. Duke's new center is going to be an amazing testimony to Duke's commitment to patient care, cancer research and finding a cure in our lifetime. The new center will open in the spring of 2012. I love the caring ideas evidenced in the building's design. "Patient at the center" is how Karen Cochran, Executive Director of Development for the Center, described Duke's approach.
