DIABETES PREVENTION AND OUR STAFF
NDORI is a 501c3 organization and is led by a board of directors. The NDORI staff is joined by Deborah Colby, an accomplished registered clinical dietitian, healthcare and Certified Diabetes Educator, who will serve as NDORI’s education director.
NDORI is developing the necessary infrastructure to offer diabetes and obesity clinical research, including clinical trials, disease-based registries and treatment-based algorithms. The world-class research center and its programs are being developed in conjunction with strategic affiliations with national health care organizations such as Cleveland Clinic’s Endocrinology & Metabolism Institute, local and regional healthcare providers, educational institutions such as William Carey University and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College with expertise in medical and research fields, as well as local, state and federal agencies, which are all critical to NDORI’s success.
