Ms. Debbie Meylor joined the Duke CTSI TransPop team in February 2012. She supports several cohort studies. Ms. Meylor also brings skills in phlebotomy and sample collection, as well as bilingual abilities allowing her to work both with Spanish-speaking and English-speaking participants.
A native of Puerto Rico, she relocated to New York at an early age. After graduation, she had the opportunity to work as a specimen technician and soon became interested in medicine and helping others. She returned to school, trained in phlebotomy and learned about Duke’s work in Kannapolis.
Mrs. Meylor appreciates working for the TransPop team because it gives her an opportunity to serve the community and work toward a healthier future for all. She enjoys spending time with her two children and helping youth in her church.
