Tony Moody, MD recently served as Week 1 Attending Physicianfor Camp Kaleidoscope, a camp for children treated at Duke Children’s Hospital who have severe illnesses such as brain tumors, leukemia, heart disease, asthma and lupus. Because these illnesses would typically preclude them from summer camp, Camp K provides a unique opportunity for these children to enjoy fun in the outdoors while under the care and supervision of Duke Medical Center staff. Founded in 1979, Camp K is held in Henderson, NC at Camp Graham, a North Carolina Costal Pines Girl Scouts camp, and takes place over three weeks in July. Camp Kaleidoscope campers participate in all regular camp activities with the Girl Scouts including waterfront, tie-dye, camp cleanup, and the daily flag ceremony. It is free to participants and is funded through donations to the Duke Children’s Hospital. To learn more about Camp Kaleidoscope, please visit the Camp Kaleidoscope website.
This is the sixth year that Dr. Moody has acted as Week 1 Attending Physician. Dr. Moody is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases at Duke University Medical Center and the Chief Medical Officer of the Duke Human Vaccine Institute.
