Duke Health Government Relations

The mission of Duke Health Government Relations (DGR) is to advance the strategic goals of the Duke community with policy makers.

Engage. Educate. Advocate.

We represent Duke on health-related issues at the federal level, and monitor and work collaboratively with Duke University and Duke Health Office of State Relations on state issues that are relevant to the University, Health System, and Duke LifePoint Healthcare.

DGR works to:

  • ENGAGE the Duke community and external policy stakeholders on any issue that may impact the institution.

  • EDUCATE the Duke community on legislative matters that may affect Duke’s missions of education, research, patient care, and community service, in addition to ethics and lobbying regulations to ensure compliance across campus.

  • ADVOCATE for public policy that supports a positive environment for research universities and academic medicine.
