For Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON), Memorial Day is more than a three-day weekend. It’s a time for us to honor and remember the men and women who answered the call of freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

DUSON has always had a special connection to the military. During World War II, many of our graduate nurses went abroad to support U.S. and Allied troops. And even today, DUSON has faculty, staff and students who have or are actively serving our nation.

MSN graduate Amanda Paya remembers being inundated as a child with images in magazines and on television of people dying from AIDS. She recalls the panic conveyed through the media of the disease that was still so new and that no one understood.

“I’m a child of the eighties, so I remember seeing those images and wanting to help and wanting to make a difference,” Paya recalls.
