Duong (BS Microbiology and Cell Science ‘17, MIB ’18) was heavily involved during her time at the 365bet, including as a research assistant at Warrington and the UF Diabetes Institution, a volunteer at UF Health Shands Hospital and University President of the Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County. She has received several awards in addition to being inducted into the UF Hall of Fame, including the Presidential Service Award, named a Newman Civic Fellow and received grants from the Kathryn Davis Projects for Peace and Bob Graham Center for Leadership and Service. Duong was also an undergraduate and graduate teaching assistant for over 1,200 students across the courses Principles of Microbiology, Probiotics for Microbiology, International Business, Entrepreneurship, Business in Asia, Global Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior.
Duong also is the co-founder of C&N Consultants Inc., a non-profit company designed to tailor health interventions for underprivileged communities. The company currently has three projects in design, two projects in implementation and over $12,000 in grant funded community initiatives. PitchSafe is one such initiative which has taught children, parents, and coaches about the symptoms of concussion and baseball safety. Through her work with C&N, she has translated imagination into action, built lasting partnerships with future leaders, and empowered communities in the U.S. and Peru to live safe and healthy lives.
Duong is particularly proud of the work C&N Consultants has done under Project Picol, which utilized the unique skills and backgrounds of UF students and Peruvian families to construct twenty-one adobe houses, provide horticultural education, evaluate community health, and establish economical partnerships to purchase and sell livestock. A grant from UF’s Projects for Peace has given a rural community in Picol, Peru a chance to sustain themselves.
