NIDDK Director's Update Spring 2019

Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers collaborates with a colleague at the NIH Clinical Center

Director's Note

NIDDK has a loyal, dedicated, talented staff – I often call our staff the “NIDDK family.” We are fortunate to have people among us who have worked at the Institute for decades. Case in point, Dr. Judith Fradkin. The longtime director of the Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases retired in December following nearly 40 years of NIDDK service.

We are thankful for Judy’s leadership, expertise, and tireless work in the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes and other metabolic and endocrine disorders. She is already missed, though we wish her well in her next phase of life – in which she’ll prioritize a newer title: grandmother. Learn more about Judy’s tenure at NIDDK in the News Around NIDDK section of this issue. Read more
