They are here to see how Duke Med. Ctr. can help their son Evan. Evan is now 24. When he was 21 he took a nasty snowboard spill, struck his head, had a headache but finished the day on the slopes. Days later the headache persisted but was starting to subside so his father Salvatore took him to the local hospital. After some brief testing he was advised to take it easy, take some pain meds, and come back if it didn't fully subside.</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Duke University Medical Center</span> <div class="street-address"> 2301 Erwin Road </div> <span class="locality">Durham</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <span class="postal-code">27710</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="36.007682">36° 0' 27.6552" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-78.937658">78° 56' 15.5688" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=36.007682+-78.937658+%282301+Erwin+Road%2C+Durham%2C+NC%2C+27710%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=2301+Erwin+Road&amp;csz=Durham%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
