MURDOCK Study reaches milestone with 10,000th participant!
Just call him "Mr. Ten Thousand."
That's what Stephen Long, a 23-year-old from Concord,
dubbed himself Friday after he became the 10,000th person to enroll in
Duke University's MURDOCK Study, based at the N.C. Research Campus in
When Long, who works in the health care industry, agreed
to enroll in the study, he didn't know he would represent a milestone
and garner media attention.
"I was not expecting to be filmed during my session," he
said, adding that he didn't mind and hopes coverage of his enrollment
will prompt others to join.
