Duke Today published an article on Dr. Len White’s decade of innovative, globe-spanning, online teaching in neuroscience.  Read all about it here:


“All of our meals are important; I don’t think breakfast is the most important meal, (but it) kick-starts the process for our body to function properly.”

  • Kathryn Starr, associate professor in the Department of Medicine, Aging Center Senior Fellow, and Aging Center T32 Alumna quoted in The New York Times about how eating breakfast regularly is associated with a range of health benefits. The story can also be accessed on DNYUZ.
