Honoring the legacy of Dr. Brenda Armstrong

(10/29/18 4:00am)

On Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018, Dr. Brenda "Doc" Armstrong passed away. I remember Coach Doc’s mezzo-trill, threatening us slowpokes with laps “ONE, TWO, THREE...everybody run a lap!” I remember her sprinting down metal bleachers to comfort our 4x4 anchor whose ACL ruptured during pre-lims. I remember the pre-meds’ standing ovations at her inspired speeches about transforming negative “baggage” into a “toolkit” for success. I remember Coach Doc as an inspiration. How will Duke remember her power, compassion, and brilliance?
