Christine Chan M.D.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital Colorado
Dr. Chan is a pediatric endocrinologist at Children's Hospital Colorado. She received her MD from the University of California Irvine in 2006 and completed her pediatric endocrinology fellowship at the University of Colorado in 2012 after which she joined the pediatric endocrine faculty at Children's Hospital Colorado. Her primary area of interest is diabetes clinical research, specifically screening for pediatric diabetes and the evaluation and management of cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). Her current research projects involve studying the role of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in CFRD, specifically, understanding the significance of early glycemic abnormalities that traditional CFRD screening tests may overlook. She is challenged by the high prevalence of early glycemic abnormalities in CF and interested in determining whether these findings correlate with lasting health consequences. The overall goal of her research is to determine if CGM abnormalities have a role in predicting decline in key-CF clinical outcomes and to pave the way for future glucose-based interventional trials to prevent CF clinical decline.
