I am a Professor and the Interim Division Chief at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. I have been active with medical student and resident teaching for almost 30 years in both academic and private practice settings. I enjoy mentoring and engaging medical students, residents and fellows in all aspects of pediatric endocrine and diabetes care and have an active portfolio of clinical research projects at the University of Texas Health Science Center. I developed and continue to serve as the Fellowship Program Director of the Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship which began in 2007. Our 2010 ACGME site visit led to a Program Director commendation and we now have had an extended accreditation cycles and a successful CLER visit with no citations. I have been involved with our Pediatric Scholarship Oversight program for many years. I served as the Director of the Children`s Center at the Texas Diabetes Institute from 2005 -2011 and now remain active with my clinics and our clinical research based at that site. I am active with the American Academy of Pediatrics, serving six years as an inaugural invited author and editor of the PREP Endocrinology Writing followed by election to the AAP Section of Endocrinology Executive Committee, of which I am now the re-elected Chair. I have consistently been recognized annually as a peer selected San Antonio Best Doctors for our subspecialty since 2009, Castle Connolly Regional Top Doctor annually since 2012, and was recognized by the Bexar County Medical Society for their Extraordinary Women in Medicine Leadership Award in 2018. I am the local Principal Investigator on the NIH sponsored TODAY, TODAY genetics and a multitude of ancillary and related sub studies with the TODAY2 study to investigate longitudinal Type 2 Diabetes treatment outcomes and co-morbidities in adolescent patients. My role has included steering committee work, leading writing groups and I have led the tracking and adjudication of diabetes related hypertension and renal disease occurring at all of the study sites. I am the local PI for the Pediatric Diabetes Consortium as well as several industry related clinical trials of medications to treat Type 2 Diabetes in Youth. I am currently one of two US physicians invited to serve on the Global Pediatric Type 2 Diabetes Expert Committee with several international manuscripts in progress regarding patterns of Type 2 Diabetes onset and progression in youth around the globe.
