Tuesday, January 5, 2021

William Yancy, MD, has received an award from the PDC Outcomes Research Team (PORT) for his project "An Evaluation of Duke Weight Management Programs to Inform Development of a Collaborative Center."

Dr. Yancy is an associate professor of medicine (General Internal Medicine) and program director of the Duke Diet and Fitness Center.

"This award will provide the resources to pull data from the several weight management clinical programs at Duke so that we can better understand the characteristics of patients seeking weight management, their outcomes and predictors of outcomes. The goal is to increase collaboration and cross-referrals among the programs, and, more importantly, to improve processes and tailor strategies for quality improvement," said Yancy.
