March 26- Dr. Feldman in Ann Arbor News, Detroit Free Press

By coincidence, two newspapers ran major feature stories involving Eva Feldman, M.D., Ph.D., Neurology, on the same day – – giving readers across southeastern Michigan a chance to learn about her research and the clinical trials she is currently leading. In the joint Sunday edition of the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News, Free Press columnist Susan Ager wrote of her experience as a participant in Dr. Feldman’s trial for people with mild nerve damage related to Type 1 diabetes – – and along the way, educated readers about the process of taking part in clinical research. In addition to Dr. Feldman and research nurse Cynthia Plunkett, RNC, the story also quotes Dan Clauw, MD, director of the Center for the Advancement of Clinical Research, and directs readers to the Engage web site to learn more about clinical trials at U-M. The second story, in the Ann Arbor News, focused on Dr. Feldman’s research in diabetes but also in ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and other nerve disorders.
