MHRI Researchers are Speaking Out

One of MHRI’s investigators, Vanita Aroda, MD of the MedStar Community Clinical Research Center, is “Setting the Record Straight on Diabetes Care”! This is part of MediaplanetUSA Diabetes in America campaign, to help raise awareness of the millions of Americans who are living with some form of diabetes.

Dr. Aroda's work focuses on diabetes, an illness with growing effects on our community. With more than 8% of Washington DC residents living with diabetes right now, the research that we are completing can make an impact nationally and right here in our own backyards. Dr. Aroda was also one of the co-directors of the Taking Control of Your Diabetes Conference and Health Fair that took place this weekend on May 21 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC.

Congratulations to Dr. Aroda on all her successful work and commitment to our communities’ wellness!
