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 25 years in both academic and private practice settings. I focus on mentoring and engaging medical students, residents and fellows in all aspects of pediatric endocrine and diabetes care with an active portfolio of clinical research projects at the University of Texas Health Science Center. I serve as the Fellowship Program Director of the Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship. Our 2010 ACGME site visit received a 5 year cycle and I received a Program Director commendation and we now have had an extended accreditation after a successful CLER visit. I chaired one of three Pediatric Scholarship Oversight Subcommittees for many years and now serve on a subcommittee for Pediatrics and also am involved in the Pediatric ACGME program as a mentor.

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 Group (an online maintenance of certification and Pediatric Endocrinology board review publication), serving six years as an elected and then re-elected member of the Section of Endocrinology Executive Committee, of which I am now the elected Chair. I am the local Principal Investigator on the NIH sponsored TODAY and TODAY2 study which investigates longitudinal Type 2 Diabetes treatment outcomes and co-morbidities in adolescent patients as well as the TODAY genetics study and the multitude of ancillary and related sub studies. My role in this national study includes utilization of biomarker data as well as overseeing the tracking and adjudication of diabetes related hypertension and renal disease occurring at the study sites. I am the local PI for the Pediatric Diabetes Consortium as well as several industry related trials of medications treating 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 describing the patterns of Type 2 Diabetes onset and progression in youth around the globe. Our mission of education, research and inclusive high quality endocrine care at UT Health was recognized again in 2017 when all four of our Pediatric Endocrine division physicians were selected (as the only four of several in the city) as San Antonio Best Doctors for our subspecialty.
