Dr. Kimber Simmons (MD, MS) is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes in Aurora, CO. She cares for children with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and other endocrinologic disorders. She is passionate about educating families and the community about T1D. As a child, she prayed every night for a cure for T1D, and now she spends much of her time conducting research to contribute to the prevention of and, ultimately, a cure for T1D! She is involved in efforts to identify children who have T1D early, before they develop symptoms, and is an active investigator in many prevention trials, including those run by TrialNet. As a collegiate athlete who loves hiking, running, and spending time outdoors with her husband and two young children, she is sympathetic to the blood sugar roller coaster. She enjoys helping young athletes learn to manage their blood sugars better. She is honored to be part of such a dedicated and innovative group of individuals committed to making positive changes for people at risk for and living with T1D!
