The staff here at Rede Group often find themselves in really unique places around the Northwest and the United States. As we visit cool places we are going to share some of the things we see and experience with you! This week a couple of us had a chance to visit Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina. We met with a fantastic group of public health professionals and helped facilitate them through a strategic communication plan. We had a blast! While visiting we toured the Duke Homestead (where the Duke family pretty much started the tobacco industry in the US.) They celebrate without much mention of the death and devastation that originated there. Next we visited Duke University. Originally Trinity University until the tobacco/energy family endowed enough money to change the name.
