Anne Camp, MD
Years active at Yale: 1990-present
Dr. Camp is being recognized for her career as an endocrinologist dedicated to improving the care of people with diabetes and metabolic disease in underserved communities, specifically at the Fair Haven Community Health Center in New Haven. Over the last decade, as the incidence of diabetes explodes in the population she serves, her focus has broadened to include research in diabetes prevention and improved treatments that address the needs of such communities.
Following medical school at Vanderbilt she completed residency in Internal Medicine at Yale, followed by fellowships in preventive cardiology and endocrinology. Under her leadership, the Fair Haven Community Health Center was among the first nationally to focus on health disparities in diabetes incidence and outcomes. She has worked tirelessly to improve diabetes care for the underserved through applied organizational system changes. More recently, her efforts have been directed at developing such systems as translating existing evidence into proven effective programs. These are aimed at reversing abnormalities in glucose regulation in adults with pre-diabetes and obese youth in underserved communities.
Her current research collaboration through the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases takes place within a multicenter clinical trial to evaluate and compare the long-term metabolic and clinical effects of several classes of drugs in combination with metformin for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
