A vital component of a "moral, happy, productive" life — Durham Academy's goal for each student — is physical, social-emotional and mental wellness.
Health Care Professionals
Teachers are at the heart of wellness efforts, and to enhance care for students and bolster our medical policies and procedures, DA also relies on multiple health professionals.
The Preschool/Lower School Infirmary is managed by Kim Allison, who is available to care for sick students, as well as to administer medication to students who require it on a routine basis.
Licensed Nurse Practitioner Sarah Chaires is DA’s medical consultant. Parents may occasionally hear from Chaires regarding health alerts and advice.
Dr. Walker Robinson serves as DA’s collaborating physician, supervising sports medicine education programming and schoolwide health care policies and protocols.
