NDI: Collaborative Clinical Research
Helfgott is developing a pilot data collection project by partnering with Natural Doctors International (NDI), an organization dedicated to treating underserved populations through natural medicine. NDI has created an integrative clinic on the island of Ometepe that serves its residents 24 hours a day. In addition, NDI provides opportunities for international medical rotations for naturopathic doctors and medical students, as well as other complementary and alternative medical health professionals. Helfgott is working with NDI to conduct observational and outcomes research that can inform NDI's clinical practice, as well as their community outreach activities.
