Over a month almost two years ago, an artist painted the walls of the Duke Health Center in Durham, N.C.
Each section of the building’s interior now represents a different part of the globe. The front waiting area is a jungle with smiling monkeys swinging from vines; one back hall takes a visitor through Europe; turn another corner, and they are amid the snow and ice of the Antarctic. Each area is truly its own world.
Within this world, and among patients and medical trainees, Dr. Suzanne Woods is at home.
