Professionals work each day across North Carolina in the field of aging and adult services. Use the directory below to connect with other professionals doing similar work. Identify gaps in expertise on your local MDT and reach out to a professional in the directory to ask them to join your team. Search by name, job title, job description, area of expertise, role, or location. The “Role” assigned to each user below is their role with respect to the MDT in their community, if one exists. A Community Member is someone who is not currently a member of the county’s adult protection MDT. If someone is a member of the MDT, they are either assigned as an MDT Coordinator or MDT Member. Registered users may use the roles to identify potential new team members or connect with existing team members, as well as connect with others in your county who share your interest in protecting vulnerable adults.
