As an endocrinologist, I understand that diabetes can be overwhelming. On this website, patients can learn about the diagnosis, engage with others, and empower themselves to take an active role in the management of this lifelong condition.

I am extremely excited about Caretalk's potential for people with new or ongoing medical conditions. Currently, many people fall through the cracks with the medical system, not knowing who to talk to or what to ask. For those with a rare disease, the situation can be even worse -- individuals can go for years without a proper diagnosis or key information. Caretalk connects with these people by providing clear content to families and patients in need.

Families with a new diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease or other forms of dementia crave information. In their searches, they are overwhelmed by the amount of information available online. I joined the Caretalk team so that I could be a part of the solution. As a Caretalk advisor, I have a voice in the information presented, and I know it's reliable, accurate, and easy to understand.

The world of clinical trials can be mysterious and opaque to patients. I am excited to help Caretalk make that world more understandable and transparent.
