Jennifer Raymond, MD, MCR
Primary Appointment: Assistant Professor
My primary area of interest is the multiple transitions patients with diabetes experience as they move from childhood through adolescence to young adulthood. This interest encompasses understanding how the adolescent matures into an adult capable of being independently responsible for intensive diabetes management, including achieving ideal diabetes control to minimuze risks for long-term complications. My research extends into understanding the processes of care necessary for a successful transition to adulthood, as well as the behavioral maturation of young people. I am also interested in motivational and technological tools that may increase the likelihood of successful progression to responsible diabetes management behavior. I joined the faculty at the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes in 2012 as an NIH K12 Scholar to establish a novel program, "Transition of Diabetes Care in Adolescents and Young Adults." I have also recently been funded by the Helmsley Charitable Trust to investigate the use of shared medical appointments in adolescents and young adults with Type 1 Diabetes in addition to exploring the completion of routine diabetes care visits with young adults from their homes through telemedicine technologies.
