For many, the Thanksgiving holiday is one of good food, family and friends, and a few days off. In my family, we make sure we stop to reflect on all for which we are thankful. For me, I am grateful for the opportunity to lead an outstanding team of researchers and medical professionals who are all committed to discovering better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for diabetes.
In this season of giving thanks, I also wish to acknowledge our generous donors and supporters who continue to support our diabetes research and clinical care efforts. Without them, so many of the advances discussed in this publication would not be possible.
Please accept my thanks for your continued interest in the Diabetes Center at UCSF. I wish you and your family the best this holiday season.
