Let us take you back

 80 years.
The year was 1926.
Dr. Wilburt C. Davison was the
inaugural dean of the Duke
University School of Medicine.
Davison’s unique approach to medicine
de ed the traditions of the time.
In 1930, he laid the foundation for
  Duke Children’s Hospital.
Within ve years,
Duke was ranked in the top 10%
  of academic medical centers in America.
Today Duke is considered one of the top
academic health centers in the world.
You could say it all started in the 1940’s
  with a special piece of plastic.
Dr. Jay Arena, a pediatrician at Duke,
  noticed a sudden increase in children
getting sick or dying from aspirin overdose.
Manufacturers had just
begun adding avoring
to their medicine,
making it
 taste like candy.
Dr. Arena persuaded St. Joseph’s Aspirin
to do something about the problem.
Together, they invented a device
that changed the world forever.
The childproof safety cap.
An invention that has
saved countless lives.
It was the rst major milestone
for Duke Children’s Hospital,
but only the beginning
   of our in uential story.
In the 1960s, Dr. Madison Spach
performed one of the rst pediatric
     cardiac catheterizations.
In the 1970’s Dr. Thomas
Kinney initiated a program
to screen babies for sickle
cell anemia.
The program has since
been im...
By the 1980s and 1990s, Duke Children’s was
making a di erence around the world.
Dr. Robert DeLong designed a clever way to
add iodine to irrigation water in rural China.
His work has spared thousands of children
   from the dangers of iodine de ciency.
Dr. Rebecca Buckley pioneered
the use of marrow transplants
to give SCIDS patients
a healthy, functioning
   immune system.
Researchers at Duke have developed new
  methods to protect the brain, heart and
lungs of infants undergoing heart surgery.
These are now standard procedures
at most pediatric heart surgery centers.
Dr. Catherine Wilfert led the
trial that demonstrated AZT
prevents HIV transmission
from mothers to babies.
Thanks to her work,
HIV transmission from
mother to child has
plummeted worldwide.
Without our story
 the world would be
a very di erent place.
Our story of innovation
 continues today.
We continue to invest in leading
research programs focused on:
      Infectious Diseases
      Childhood Cancers
      Bir...
Thanks to a procedure developed by Dr. Louise
 Markert the diagnosis of DiGeorge Syndrome
    is no longer a death sentenc...
Duke Children’s Hospital is
the only place in the world
 to o er this procedure.
Duke Children’s has the largest
   pediatric bone marrow
transplant center in America.
Our neonatology division has pioneered
methods to improve outcomes
 for premature babies.
Dr. Y.T. Chen and Dr. Priya
Kishnani have developed an
enzyme therapy treatment
for Pompe disease.

Before treatment exist...
In 2003 Duke Children’s established
the Duke Food Allergy Initiative (DFAI)
Dr. Wesley Burks and his team have made strides
toward developing a peanut allergy vaccine.
They’ve unlocked immeasurable hope
for families facing dangerous food allergies
          as part of their daily lives.
We’re proud of our milestones,
  but our story is about
     so much more.
Like the children we care for,
Duke Children’s Hospital
  is always growing.
40 years ago…
there were 13 faculty members
    dedicated to children.
Today there are more than 200.
30 years ago…
Critical Care was a single room.
Today it’s a 20-bed unit with an additional
13 beds dedicated to cardiology critical care.
20 years ago…
fewer than 50% of children survived
       their childhood cancer.
Today most children have
a survival rate greater than 75%.
Demand for our services is increasing.
Each day is a balancing act to accommodate
  as many families as we can.
Duke Children’s needs to grow
in order to advance research on children’s
health and provide hope to children in our
    co...
While this is our story,
it’s far from the whole story.
Our story is just one part of
millions of much bigger stories.
The stories of brave
children and families
whose lives we touch.
Children and families in need of
 hope and answers.
Your generosity helps us
 continue our story.
Because nothing
 matters more.
Here’s to the
  next chapter.
