Profile
ABOUT ME

With more than 30 years of experience in the care of children and adolescents with endocrine disorders and diabetes, I have served for the past 21 years as Chief of Duke’s Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. In addition to directing an active research laboratory, I have played a leading role in the field of clinical pediatric nutrition. My colleagues and I were the first to demonstrate the benefits of pharmacotherapy in children with pre-diabetes. I have also taken a leading role in the evaluation and management of children with type 1 diabetes. My colleagues and I were the first to use insulin pumps in infants and toddlers with type 1 diabetes, and we spearheaded the screening of diabetic children for celiac disease. I won Duke’s Golden Apple Award for outstanding teaching and was awarded (continuously since 2001) membership in America’s Top Doctors, sponsored by US News & World Report/Castle Connolly, which includes only 37 pediatric endocrinologists/diabetologists nationwide, and in Best Doctors in America.
