Dr. Clum's success in creating integrated programs for insulin resistance specifically focusing on diabetes, diabetes prevention, metabolic syndrome, weight loss resistance, obesity, and cardiometabolic issues led him to join a national corporate wellness and population health company, ADURO Inc., in 2014 to date serving 140 employers and over 1,000,000 employees. Here at ADURO Dr. Clum has designed and delivered the first alternative diabetes prevention program that rivals and beats the national statistics of the National Diabetes Prevention Program from the N.I.H., and C.D.C.
In 2015 Dr. Clum was accepted into and started a Ph.D. program in Health Psychology at Northcentral University where his emphasis of study is centered on the relationship of chronic stress, food and general addiction cycle, and early onset of male depression in what is termed the Irritable Male Syndrome.
