HIGHLIGHTED SPEAKERS

*Steven V. Edelman, MD
TCOYD Founder & Director

Dr. Edelman is the founder and director of Taking Control Of Your Diabetes (TCOYD), a professor of medicine in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare System of San Diego. He is also the director of the Diabetes Care Clinic at the VA Medical Center. Dr. Edelman, who has type 1 diabetes himself, has written more than 200 articles, five books, and has won numerous awards for teaching and humanitarianism. He has been chosen by the medical students at UCSD as the ‘teacher of the year’ numerous times. Among his many honors, Dr. Edelman has received the ‘Diabetes Educator Of The Year’ award by the American Diabetes Association, the ‘Distinction in Endocrinology’ award by the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and named ‘Top 1% of U.S. Endocrinologists’ by US News and World Report.

*Jeremy Pettus, MD
Type 1 Track Co-Director, Endocrinologist, Assistant 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.

Tricia Santos, MD
Type 2 Track Co-Director, Endocrinologist, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, UCSD School of Medicine

Dr. Santos did her endocrinology training under Dr. Edelman who sparked a love for all things diabetes and always kept things both “educational & entertaining.” Now she is an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCSD where she wears many different hats. She has a special interest in caring for diabetic patients and helping them take a more active role in managing their diabetes. She directs the Diabetes & Endocrinology courses at the UCSD School of Medicine. She also teaches doctors in training and primary care physicians where she focuses on the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and involving the patient in medical decision making. Her love of teaching patients, students, and doctors has been recognized by several teaching awards. Her research focuses on investigating new and advanced therapies and technology for people with diabetes.

Her first book, Balancing Diabetes (Spry Publishing), looks at type 1 diabetes in the context of “real life.” Kerri has lived with diabetes for 30 years. She has experienced a full childhood, the teen years, the college experience, and now pregnancy and parenting, with diabetes along for the ride. Kerri aims to spread a message of hope versus fear through the power of social media, advocacy, and storytelling.
