Duke Sports Science Institute

Duke Sports Science Institute


The Sports Science Institute
that we are dedicating today, grows out of a history that’s very
peculiar and distinctive to this place. There aren’t that many places in
the world that have great medicine and world class athletics. [MUSIC] But the interesting think about Duke is,
as soon as you had Duke, athletics and medicine began to interact
with one another.>>One of the major purposes of
an academic institution is, in fact, to work across our missions in education,
in research, in patient care. In a manner that we drive
transformational change and innovation.>>People think of a dream team and
they think of players. Basically what this
institute is a dream team of services to help everyone be a player. It’s so unique and so very beautiful. [MUSIC]>>Becky, Steve, what you are doing and
what you have done in helping us to create this institute is you’re bringing
to life the whole vision for Duke Health. And helping us to work together
to create something that really brings to fruition the true purpose
of an academic health science center. This is about a building in one way and another sense it isn’t in
any sense about a building. It’s about a web of aspiration. About a web of relationships that
stretches across this campus and out from this place. Through the city, through the region,
and really I think around the world.>>I love you doctors. I love you nurses. I love you trainers. I love you people who have committed
yourselves to really helping other people.>>We love this place. We’re proud to be part of it. I’m honored here, and so
blessed to be part of Duke. This will be, if it not already is, the best sports science
institute on this continent. [MUSIC]
