our mission

Want to learn more? Hear from students sharing about Root Causes at Duke Health's Department of Medicine Grand Rounds

Root Causes is an incubator for students interested in innovative social drivers of health interventions through service, advocacy, education and research. We organize around creating clinic-community partnerships to reduce barriers impacting access to healthy foods, housing, and environments, as well as providing support for voter registration and safe exercise participation. 


Our goal is to build opportunities for students to tangibly interact with social drivers of health, and create an interdisciplinary network alliance to find solutions to pressing needs in our community.
