Endocrinology & Metabolism Newsletter

Spring 2023

Dear colleagues,

Many of you have heard the sad news that Bob Sherwin, MD, former chief of the Section of Endocrinology & Metabolism, passed away on March 31. When I took over his position as section chief in 2021, I knew I had big shoes to fill. Bob was a giant in the field of diabetes research and a leader who transformed the way we treat patients. Known for his patience and generosity, he was a mentor to many of us. He is deeply missed.

As we continue to be inspired by Bob’s legacy, I am pleased to note some of the achievements in our section. In recent news, our faculty are advocating for insulin affordability, helping to create a new obesity research center, and conducting important studies on protection against liver fibrosis and on social risk factors in measurement of clinician quality, to name just a few highlights. I hope you enjoy reading the stories below.

Please reach out to me with your news or memories of Bob, or to stay in touch. I can be contacted at the email address below.


John Wysolmerski, MD
Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Section Chief, Endocrinology & Metabolism
Department of Internal Medicine, Yale School of Medicine
