    GREENSBORO, NC, December 20, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Gebre Nida has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

As one of nine children of his parents in rural Ethiopia, Dr. Nida spent his childhood raising cattle and sheep in an area still without electricity, running water, roads, or cars. Although his family faced many challenges, his father valued education and sent him to a local elementary school that was nearly an hour away on foot. He excelled as a student and attended middle school and high school even further hours away from his village with similar challenges. His high school was 5 hours one-way walking and running. He credits his teachers, his friends whom he shared rooms with, and many other kind strangers helping him survive the challenges away from home since age 12 in pursuit of education. After successfully graduating from high school, Dr. Nida received a coveted 7-year full ride public scholarship to attend Addis Ababa University, from which he earned an MD in 1999.

Two years later, Dr. Nida and his wife Ethiopia Desta immigrated to the United States, and he pursued a residency in internal medicine and fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at Wayne State University in Michigan. Upon completing his fellowship in 2009, he joined CaroMont Health as a physician, where he honed his expertise in endocrinology and internal medicine. In 2012, Dr. Nida joined Cone Health in North Carolina where he continued to contribute his expertise in the fields. A lifelong learner, he added a new specialty of lifestyle medicine in 2022 with a new board certification. An accomplished medical professional with a proven track record of success in the industry, Dr. Nida is world class in his expertise and especially passionate about preventing and reversing chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, weight problems, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol among others. He runs a successful consultative endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism practice. His unique mix of expertise including lifestyle medicine allows him to practice medicine in a collaborative care model to deliver whole person care to his patients working with his colleagues at Cone Health in Greensboro, North Carolina. His care extends between the vast Triad area of North Carolina and neighboring counties of Virginia.

Driven to remain abreast of changes in the field, Dr. Nida aligns himself with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology, the American Diabetes Association, the American Board of Internal Medicine, the North Carolina Medical Society, and the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine. Outside of his work, he leads and contributes to his community through Walk with a Doc, which offers free walking programs in communities around the world led by local physicians.

An outdoors enthusiast, he enjoys long distance running as a hobby. He raced and completed in 32 marathons so far including 5 Boston Marathon races, and 3 world major marathons with a personal best time of 2:47:09 at age 48.

While his career has been filled with highlights, Dr. Nida takes the most pride in becoming a multiple board-certified physician in the United States against his humble background. Though hard work and dedication have brought him far in his career, he credits his success to his drive to overcome the poverty in which he grew up. Looking toward the future, Dr. Nida intends to help his 3 children complete their college education and become compassionate members of society, expand his lifestyle medicine practice, and devote more time to philanthropic endeavors.
