Duke junior Aalok Modi collapsed and died Thursday night. (February 14).

Aalok collapsed around 9:45 p.m. during an intramural basketball game in Wilson Recreation Center and was taken to Duke University Hospital emergency room. He died at about 11 p.m.

Aalok was an alumnus of the Global Health Focus class and was one of the leaders of the Duke Global Health Student Action Committee, a student-run group associated with the Duke Global Health Institute.

We mourn the loss of Aalok, and express our condolences to his family.  A candlelight vigil will be held at 7 PM on the Chapel steps on Friday, Feb. 15.  All are invited to attend

We will post information about other services as we learn the details.
