Dan grew up in Prairie Village, Kansas, and graduated with a B.S. degree in biochemistry from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to starting his career in medicine, he spent two years teaching high school science in Weldon, NC through Teach for America. He then went on to medical school and a Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics residency at Vanderbilt University. He is currently a clinical fellow in Pediatric and Adult Endocrinology at Vanderbilt.
Dan's research in endocrinology focuses on using innovative care models to meet the unique needs of Type 1 Diabetes patients as they transition from pediatric to adult care. He is working with patients to understand the shortcomings of our current system and using these insights to design novel care models to better engage and empower patients in this especially at-risk group. In his free time, he enjoys obsessing over his favorite sports teams (Go Royals!) and undertaking overly-ambitious car repair projects. He also loves hiking, camping, and generally enjoying the outdoors with his wife, son and dog.
