Duke Autism Dads (DADs) supports all Duke community members who are in the role of "Dad" for autistic people.

Open to all Duke University and Duke University Health System faculty, staff, and students, DADs meets regularly in a casual setting to network, share knowledge, experiences, and resources. Begun in 2017 by Madhav Swaminathan, MD - a "Duke Autism Dad" himself - the group is a welcoming organization with a goal to enrich the lives of those with autism.
