Award Recipients

The Shingleton Award

Duke Cancer Institute established the Shingleton Award in 1987 to recognize the “outstanding service and generosity” of individuals who are committed to the fight against cancer.  Since the award’s inception (with a brief hiatus in the mid-1990s), the Cancer Center has honored many individuals, couples and families for their selflessness in commitments of time and financial resources to Duke Cancer Institute. 

Dr. William W. Shingleton, founding father and emeritus director of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, has been the moving spirit behind this prestigious honor. The force and vitality of his personal vision shaped the Duke Cancer Institute as we know it today. This award recognizes those individuals who, through their extraordinary volunteer service and support, build on the achievements of our founder and help sustain an institution that is internationally renowned for its leadership in cancer research and devotion to excellent patient care.
