Black Panther actor Winston Duke is not the only success story from his Tobago family. His sister, Cindy M. Duke, is an MD/PhD trained Physician Scientist working in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A Gynecology and Obstetrics (Gyn/Ob) specialist and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) sub-specialist, she is the founder and director of the Nevada Fertility Institute which provides diagnostic and treatment options for women and men.
In 1995, at age 17, Duke migrated to the United States with nine-year old Winston and their mother, Cora Pantin.
Their mother, in her desire for a better life for her family, sold everything she owned to invest in her children's dreams.
From a studio apartment in Brooklyn, Cora let Winston follow a creative path and Cindy persue her dream of becoming a doctor.
Winston attended the University of Buffalo and Yale School of Drama. He is today the breakout star in the historic blockbuster movie, Black Panther.
Cindy M. Duke earned her medical degree at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry, Rochester, NY, where she also gained her PhD in Microbiology & Immunology. She now operates the Nevada Fertility Clinic.
Dr. Duke's Clinical and Research Interests include Oncofertility, Fertility Preservation, Investigating the Role of the Microbiome in Reproduction and Eliminating Disparities in Healthcare Access and Delivery for Treatment Infertility.
