Diabetes Training Camp

Kimber is a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist at the Barbara Davis Center in Aurora, Colorado. Prior to medical training, her educational focus was learning how nutrition and activity affect how the body works, and she completed a Master of Science in exercise physiology where she studied the effect of diet and exercise training on cardiovascular and blood vessel health.

As a former collegiate athlete and person living with Type 1 diabetes for over 30 years and overall recreation enthusiast, she has a passion for helping her patients achieve their fitness and athletic goals and has become a local expert on exercise and diabetes. She is a strong patient advocate and is frequently asked to provide education to other medical professionals both locally and internationally. She loves helping her patients work through the complex challenges that T1D introduces in their lives, but she ultimately hopes for a T1D prevention and cure! Therefore, she is actively engaged in research to screen children for T1D before they get sick and to better understand why people get diabetes. As part of the Barbara Davis Center Prevention Team, she leads clinical trials that aim to prevent T1D or help people make insulin for longer.

She wakes up early to exercise because she believes that getting her heart pumping is key for her mental health among the chaos of everyday life. She is a coffee aficionado and has perfected the art of pour over coffee and lattes. She loves hiking and exploring the world with her husband and two children and looks forward to summiting as many Colorado 14ners as possible with her family!
