DukeNUS-Durham Community Service Group

Duke NUS Durham community service is set up to oversee all community service undertaken by Duke-NUS students in Durham. Reaching out to the local community and helping our students gain a better understanding into global healthcare challenges are two primary objectives of the committee. Through a series of community service events organized by the group, we hope to empower all students with the necessary knowledge and experience that will enhance their medical education and beyond.
