Archived Lecture: Sugar and Salt: Assessing Adrenal Hormones and Diabetes Risk Using Population Science

Timothy A. Johnson Medical Scholar Lecture presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine

Archived Lecture: Sugar and Salt: Assessing Adrenal Hormones and Diabetes Risk Using Population Science

Date: Sept. 25, 2020
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Dr. Sherita Hill Golden is the Hugh P. McCormick Family Professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism and Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for Johns Hopkins Medicine. She holds joint appointments in the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research, in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and in the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Dr. Golden’s epidemiological research interests focus on two areas: (1) endogenous sex hormones as risk factors for CVD, type 2 diabetes, and insulin resistance in post-menopausal women and (2) mental health complications of diabetes and the biological, hormonal, and behavioral factors that might explain these associations. Her health services research focuses on understanding and eliminating diabetes health disparities and implementing and evaluating systems interventions to improve patient safety and quality of care in hospitalized patients with diabetes.
