In the Community

The success of the MURDOCK Study correlates directly to the engagement of community partners and their willingness to actively support this long-term health study.

Community Partners

Cooperation with local organizations and community leaders is vital to the continued success and advancement of our study. We are partners with a number of community organizations, covering a wide area of social interests, including education, healthcare, and fitness. From health education to our volunteer program, engaging and supporting our community is part of the MURDOCK Study’s daily mission.

MURDOCK Study team members participate in a number of community events, such as the Midland Magic Festival (pictured above), held annually in October.

The MURDOCK Study frequently hosts, sponsors, and attends events in the Concord/Kannapolis area. In addition, we strive to make MURDOCK Study participants aware of all of the wonderful community events that are happening in the area. Please check our various social media platforms, linked to on the bottom of this page, to discover what is going on in your community.

Advisory Board

The MURDOCK Study Healthcare Advisory Board was created in January 2009 and is made up of local healthcare providers in the region. This group brings their on-the-ground clinical perspective and is dedicated to engaging their patients to join the study. The group convenes biannually.
