An Exciting Week for MHRIs D2d Diabetes Study!

In recognition of Diabetes Alert Day, on Tuesday, MHRI had a chance to help bring awareness to diabetes by showcasing our D2d study on local news outlets. The D2d study is a nationwide diabetes study which evaluates if Vitamin D can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. MHRI currently has sites at our Hyattsville (MCCRC) MedStar Community Clinical Research Center and MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital. 

On Monday evening, Dr. Adline Ghazi, director of the diabetes program at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital participated in a live in-studio interview at the ABC-TV studios in Baltimore. 

On Wednesday, an Emmy-winning journalist from ABC-TV in Washington, visited our MCCRC site to do a story with one of our D2d participants and with Twan Lindsay, PA, a sub-investigator on the study.
