Liz graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor of Arts in human biology and a Master of Science in biology and a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Pittsburgh. She is board certified in emergency medicine and has practiced for 30 years. At age 53, Liz was diagnosed as new onset Type 1 diabetic. An insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor were crucial in her continuation as a successful emergency medicine doctor.
Searching for how to live daily with diabetes, Liz found the information and experience as a DTC camper mind opening and truly transformational. At DTC, Liz started in the Couch to 5K program and has since run in 5Ks and 10Ks and completed a 100-mile Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) bicycle ride. Liz encourages participants to think of DTC as going to University where “you get to figure you out.” She thanks her husband Steve and son Charles for their everyday support.
