A Note from Dr. Duke

"I was lucky enough to have already worked at CHKD a few years back to fill a temporary emergency staffing need. I was impressed with the facility, the staff, and I felt a connection to the community that CHKD serves. Now, as a full-time member of the CHKD family, I relish serving the culturally diverse community of Hampton Roads."
