Diabetes Training Camp

Kenilia was born and raised in Cuba. She moved to South Florida while attending high school and went on to study medicine at Universidad Iberoamericana in the Dominican Republic. After finishing medical school, she relocated to New Jersey where she completed her residency training in internal medicine and where she currently works as a hospitalist. Kenilia is working on completing her fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the University of Rochester. She first attended DTC last year as part of the medical team, and the experience changed her perspective of what living with diabetes is. She fell in love with the DTC community and what it embodies.

Kenilia takes the most pride in being a mom to her six year old son Alejandro and a wife to her husband Jose. In her free time, she enjoys working out, traveling and getting to know new cultures. Kenilia always looks forward to meeting campers and getting to know their stories.
