After leaving the Air Force, Dr. Duval became the Medical Director of Occupational Health Services for the Smithsonian Institution. In this position, he led a team to provide occupational medical services to Smithsonian Employees across the world. During his tenure, he and his team created a clinically based workplace wellness program with nearly 3,000 enrollees that brought about a decrease in sick leave costs of $12.7 million while saving the equivalent of 152 FTEs in lost work hours within 5 years of implementation.
