Every spring the Duke University School of Medicine recognizes the achievements of a number of our colleagues with the presentation of School of Medicine faculty awards. Although we cannot gather to celebrate in person this year, we want to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the recipients of this year’s faculty awards. Please take a moment to learn more about the winners and to congratulate them on these well-deserved honors. Thank you for making Duke such a great place to teach, learn, discover, and seek care.

Congratulations to the following 2021 Duke Department of Pediatrics Award recipient!
