Welcome to the week at Duke in 60 seconds.

Researchers from Duke’s School of Medicine have found that one-on-one therapy has the best and quickest results for easing post-traumatic stress disorder in active military members.

New research from Duke economists shows that the median earnings gap between black and white men has returned to what it was in 1950. Additionally, the earnings gap between highly educated and less educated black men has reached an all-time high.

This spring, Duke freshmen and sophomores will be able to take part in a pilot program called Spring Breakthrough. Students will stay on campus during spring break and take a five-day mini-course with one of Duke’s top professors. The courses are ungraded to give students a no-risk opportunity to explore something new.

Finally, the Duke community is invited to a holiday concert Tuesday morning at 11 in Duke Chapel. The concert will feature the Raleigh Jazz Orchestra quintet, followed by snacks on Abele quad.
