I am a Professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. I have been active with medical student and resident teaching for 22 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. I chair one of three Pediatric Scholarship Oversight Subcommittees and represent the Pediatric Endocrine Division at Scholarly Oversight and GME committee meetings. I have served as the Director of the Childrens Center at the Texas Diabetes Institute from 2005 to 12/2011 and now serve as a co-director. I serve as an invited author and member of the PREP Endocrinology Editorial Board at the American Academy of Pediatrics (an online maintenance of certification and board review publication). I was also re-elected to the Academy of Pediatrics Section of Endocrinology Committee in 2012. I am a Principal Investigator on the NIH sponsored TODAY study related to Type 2 Diabetes findings in adolescents as well as the TODAY genetics study. My role in this national study includes utilization of a novel safety tracker program to provide monitoring, tracking and guidance for the management of diabetes related hypertension and renal disease occurring at the multiple national sites for this study as well as involvement in determination of renal biomarkers of disease in this cohort.
