Former KL2 Scholar Dr. Vanita R. Aroda profiled in The Lancet

Dr. Vanita R. Aroda, current Director of the Diabetes Clinical Research Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital and former GHUCCTS KL2 scholar, is featured in the piece "Vanita Aroda: the accidental role model… by no accident" published by The Lancet.
