Maria J. Redondo, MD, PhD, MPH
My philosophy of care is to provide each child or adolescent with the most advanced medical care, in an individualized and comprehensive manner, to ensure their health and wellbeing. I promote shared decision making with the youth, in an age-appropriate manner, and their family.
My clinical activity focuses in the care of children with diabetes, including type 1, type 2 and other types of diabetes.
The overall goal of my research is the prevention of diabetes and its progression. I am interested in discovering the genetic and environmental causes of diabetes that can be leveraged for prevention and treatment. I also work to understand how to optimize clinical outcomes in pediatric diabetes.
