I previously was Chair of the American College of Cardiology's Diabetes Collaborative Registry (DCR) StakeHolder Committee.

I have lectured nationally and internationally and published numerous articles and co-edited the book "Endocrine Disorders During Pregnancy" with Dr Lois Jovanovic, published by Endocrinology & Metabolism Clinics of North America.
