Sound Rivers Board
David N. Collier
A professor of pediatrics at East Carolina University’s Brody School of Medicine, David Collier also serves as co-director of the Translational Research Support Core — a central interface between basic scientists, data scientists, epidemiologists, clinical researchers and public health practitioners— for N.C. State’s Center for Human Health and the Environment.
He enjoys outdoor activities such as camping and boating, yard work and just puttering around the barn, cottage or woods.
His first connection to the Tar-Pamlico River was through his wife’s family who have owned a cottage at Broad Creek since the late 1950s, and said he became a member of Sound Rivers (then known as the Pamlico-Tar River Foundation) as soon as he learned of the organization: “because of the great work they do locally that also addresses global challenges.”
