The diversity of Duke and the Durham community is very refreshing. Once I got here and met the students and the faculty, it just felt right

Stead Society

The Eugene A. Stead Society is Duke's PA student organization. The Society keeps Duke PA students informed about developments in the profession and coordinates activities on the state and national level. Other Society activities include fund-raising, community service and events to promote public awareness of PAs. All Duke PA students are members of the Stead Society. Election of officers is held during the first semester.
