Carol Levy, MD
Advisor

Dr. Levy is Director of the Mount Sinai Diabetes Center and an Associate Professor of Medicine, Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease and Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine and Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

She is a board-certified Endocrinologist and Certified Diabetes Educator. She specializes in providing care for patients with in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes as well as general endocrine conditions.

Her academic interests are in the development of new treatments for diabetes including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. She is the director of diabetes clinical research in the Division of Endocrinology at Mount Sinai and is the principal investigator in many trials evaluating treatments for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. She collaborates with investigators in divisions across Mount Sinai and affiliated institutions.

Dr. Levy received her medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School. She completed her residency in internal medicine and her fellowship in endocrinology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center- Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Levy explains "When I went to medical school it was with the goal of becoming a physician that I would want to see as a patient. Endocrinology is an area where we guide patients on the right path to improve health but the "ball" is really in the patient's court. The role of the physician to educate and support the patient is of key importance. During my training at Joslin Clinic, I developed an interest in taking care of pregnant patients and delight in the challenge of caring for "2" patients. As a child, I developed type 1 diabetes and the patience and respect I have received from caregivers along the way (as well as my obstetrician for my pregnancies) reinforces my belief that a patient who understands the purpose of a treatment is one who is able to manage his/her disease better."

Dr. Levy receives financial compensation from Virta for her role as an advisor.
