*Jeremy Pettus, MD
Type 1 Track and Professional Education Director, Endocrinologist, Associate Professor of Medicine, UCSD School of Medicine
Dr. Jeremy Pettus was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 15 years old. Since that time he has dedicated his career to educating and treating others like himself. He is currently an Endocrinologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. There, he focuses primarily on clinical trials to develop and test new and innovative therapies for people living with diabetes. These include studies ranging from medications to reverse or slow the disease once it occurs, to islet cell transplantation strategies, to device studies such as artificial pancreas technology. As somebody who has the disease himself, sees patients with type 1, and is actively working on curing/treating the disease, we are honored to have him as our Type 1 Track director. Dr. Pettus travels across the country and the world meeting other leading physicians and scientists and brings this information directly to TCOYD conference participants.
