Jerry Humphrey III, Score Lead Reporter

The North Carolina Diabetes Research Collaborative (NCDRC) will have its second annual Regional Symposium on Friday, March 5, and it will be hosted by N.C. A&T.

 

The goal of the event is for researchers in North Carolina and surrounding states to meet and discuss institutional projects in diabetes, obesity and metabolism.

 

President-Elect of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) will present a presentation on the national status of diabetes, and representatives from the universities of Duke, Wake Forest, and Chapel Hill will also deliver speeches.

 

This is a great opportunity for students to be informed about the issues society has with diabetes, especially in the black community.

 

This event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with 15-minute breaks between presentations.
