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), Duke Cancer Institute has honored many individuals, couples and families for their selflessness in commitments of time and financial resources.

Dr. William W. Shingleton, founding father and emeritus director of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, has been the moving spirit behind the prestigious Shingleton Award. The force and vitality of his personal vision shaped the Duke Cancer Institute as we know it today.
