Through affiliations between Duke Health and Duke School of Medicine, patients across the state benefit from academic research, grant funding and collaborative partnerships. One example is the NC-PAL line. This free telephone consultation program helps pediatricians across the state better treat children with mental health needs with the support of Duke Health’s psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists. Our Duke Center for Autism Clinic's Dr. Nathan Copeland explains NC PAL in an interview with the NC Healthcare Association.
We are a group of dedicated clinicians and scientists who work in partnership with people with autism, families, and the broader community.
