  • “One of the most important things I can do as a physician is to empower my patients to live life to their fullest potential.”

I first became interested in pediatric endocrinology after meeting a child living with type 1 diabetes in Ecuador. That meeting inspired my life’s work. I realized that caring for kids with chronic conditions isn’t just about providing medical care. It’s also about making sure they and their families have access to education, support and the best tools for managing their condition. To that extent, I co-founded AYUDA, a nonprofit organization that supports diabetes empowerment programs throughout the world.

As a physician, I am dedicated to providing the same level of thorough care to my patients as I would expect for my own children. I believe one of the most important things I can do as a physician is to empower my patients to live life to their fullest potential. Learning about my patients’ achievements gives me the greatest pleasure.

In my work at Stanford, I’m developing programs that will help improve access to education and support for people with diabetes and their families. This is my passion, and I work each day to make sure we are constantly improving the lives of children with this condition.
