Marie Dockery enrolls in Project Baseline Study

Marie Dockery, Executive Director of CFC, is the second participant to enroll in the Project Baseline study in Kannapolis!

The Project Baseline study is a collaboration among teams at Verily, Duke University School of Medicine, Stanford Medicine, and Google. Returning from Sanger Vascular Heart Institute on Wednesday, July 19, she spoke about her interest in participating. “I feel a responsibility to future generations to support the information that will be gained from this study,” she said. When she reflected on the time commitment to participate – the Project Baseline study will follow participants for at least four years, requiring daily bio-feedback, annual evaluations and health tests – she acknowledges it is not a small commitment. “Yes, obtaining my baseline measures was a lot of work, it was hard, it required travel, time – maybe you could even say it was an inconvenience. But it was worth it when I think of what it will mean in knowledge and information it will bring to our research community. Someone with a medical condition, cancer, heart disease – they are experiencing hard work as well, they are inconvenienced… their commitment is so much greater than mine. I owe this to my community, and to our scientific community to help make progress in battling life affecting conditions,” said Marie. When the MURDOCK Study was actively enrolling participants, the Community Free Clinic was an enrollment site. We enjoyed a rich partnership – providing access for community members to enroll, sharing the story of the importance of the MURDOCK Study and raising awareness for other studies and partnerships on the North Carolina Research Campus. Marie is currently a member of the local Advisory Board for the Project Baseline study in Kannapolis. Duke is enrolling participants in Kannapolis and Durham.

Community Free Clinic's Nancy Litton Helps Clinic Stay on Target

CONCORD — Nancy Litton grew up walking the halls of hospitals, and knows firsthand how important healthcare can be. Before she was born, her sister, Lynn, was diagnosed with Hypoparathyroidism, which causes decreased blood levels of calcium and other issues.

As a result, her sister was constantly in the hospital and Litton was often with her. Watching healthcare professionals constantly working with her sister eventually pushed Litton to be involved in the healthcare industry herself.

“Healthcare really is something we should all be able to take for granted,” Litton said. “We should all be able to have the level of care we need for the health issues that we are facing. The more frequently we can get those identified and dealt with at the early onset or even in a preventive manner is certainly preferred.”
