The Durham Health Council was formed in 1982 as an independent "voluntary coordinating agency" to assist in organizing community health programs, initiate studies of health issues, and to act as a forum for education and information for the public. Membership on the council was open to any organization or agency in Durham active in health related work. Members included faculty and medical staff from Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina Central University, as well as staff from area hospitals and biomedical companies in Research Triangle Park. County and city health officials were also members. Due to a lack of interest in participating and competing organizations doing similar work, the Council dissolved in 1986 and gave the balance of their account to the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science to help them with their promotion of health education.
