The Clergy Health Initiative is uniquely placed as a collaborative and interdisciplinary initiative between Duke Divinity School and the Duke Global Health Institute, giving it a strong theological underpinning and the excellence of Duke’s research environment.

Since 2007, the Duke Clergy Health Initiative has worked to assess and strengthen the health and well-being of United Methodist clergy across the state of North Carolina. The initiative has collected data in the form of longitudinal surveys, focus groups, interviews, and biometric data and then used that information to develop intervention programs for clergy to improve physical and mental health as well as encourage spiritual renewal.

The Duke Clergy Health Initiative is available for conversations, presentations, and collaborative work around clergy health and well-being.
