Thank you to everyone who came to our virtual prom 2021!  If you missed out this year, you can see a modified version of our prom video here


If you would like access to the full prom video, please email atlas@duke.edu and we will send you the link.

This year we held a virtual prom program that included music, interactive games, messages from Duke staff to the participants, special guests, and a live raffle!  We mailed participants a "prom box" that included items to have an at-home photo booth, Duke swag, and other fun items.  We mailed prom boxes to 100 patients/siblings, and brought all the inpatients on June 5th a prom box as well. 

We are excited to be able to hold this hybrid virtual event in 2021, and hope to hold it back in person next year!

For questions about the prom or other ATLAS programming, please contact atlas@duke.edu or (919) 385-0842.

Pre-Prom Sock Hop

We hosted a fun and successful sock hop in February that included swing dance lessons from the Duke Swing Dance Club, a DJ, face painting, arts and crafts, and light refreshments. Be sure to check out our video!

The ATLAS program is responsible for coordination and planning of prom. ATLAS offers a range of Duke-affiliated services developed to foster resilience and independence in adolescents and young adults with special healthcare needs. Each program aims to help youth thrive as they transition from childhood to adulthood. In addition, ATLAS strives to provide support for parents around this transition. If you have any questions about ATLAS programming, please e-mail atlas@duke.edu or call 919-385-0842.
