Posted On: Thursday, March 25, 2021 - 00:50 by Brandi Tuttle

While the Digital Health Devices were unavailable over the last year due to COVID-19, the number of mobile apps and health devices used to track and fight the coronavirus exploded and continues to rapidly evolve. Now that we know more about sanitizing and quarantining materials to limit the spread of the virus, the Duke Mobile App Gateway and the Duke Medical Center Library & Archives are once again welcoming requests from researchers, clinicians, and students across Duke Health and Duke University considering digital health devices for their research or clinical needs. We hope this collection will facilitate the appropriate device selection (data collection, data format, participant comfort, etc.) for research and...

Women in Duke Health Exhibit
Posted On: Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - 19:27 by Beverly Murphy

Duke Medical Center Library & Archives is debuting a newly redesigned and updated online exhibit of Women in Duke Health just in time for Women's History Month.

The primary method of inquiry for context in this exhibit was via oral histories, a unique format that allows for both.

Call for Essays: Gold Foundation
Posted On: Monday, March 1, 2021 - 20:16 by Megan von Isenburg

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is inviting essay submissions from nursing and medical students for the Hope Babette Tang Humanism in Healthcare Essay Contest.

The prompt this year asks writers to use the following quote as inspiration and to reflect on humanism in healthcare during the past difficult year using their experiences or observations, as an individual or as a team (doctors, nurses, therapists, etc.)

“We’ll observe how the burdens braved by humankind
Are also the moments that make us humans kind;
Let each morning find us courageous, brought closer;

When this ends, we’ll smile sweetly, finally seeing
In testing times, we became the best of beings.”
