Welcome to the Duke Teen and Young Adult Oncology program website. This website is dedicated to the needs of patients and their families. Teen and young adult (TYA) or adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients have little that they can call their own. This is why this website is meant to best support TYAO patients and families through their experience with cancer at Duke.

To connect with our services or for more information please call (919)316-0164 or email us at tyao@duke.edu.


***As part of COVID-19 preparedness, the Young Adult Social Meet Up below has been canceled until further notice.

We have partnered with UNC to coordinate a young adult social meet up the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM.

You are welcome to bring a friend.

Duke TYAO’s new Art Cart!

Many thanks for the Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation (ARVF) who donated Alicia’s Art Cart to the Duke Teen and Young Adult Oncology Program. The cart is for teens and young adults with cancer and will be used both inpatient and outpatient in group and 1 to 1 settings with Geoffrey Vaughn, DCI’s Teen and Young Adult Oncology Program (TYAO) medical family therapist and art therapist.
