About the Author
Korey K. Hood, PhD, has personal experience with diabetes. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a young adult. Coincidentally, it happened just a few months after starting graduate work in pediatric diabetes. Being diagnosed at this point in his life solidified the decision he made to do research and clinical work in pediatric diabetes and seemed to promote more enthusiasm for working in this area.
Dr. Hood's combination of education, career, and personal experiences in type 1 diabetes provide him with a unique perspective to engage teenagers with type 1 diabetes and attempt to promote their health and overall quality of life.
Dr. Hood completed his PhD in clinical and health psychology at the University of Florida, with a focus on pediatric and child clinical psychology, but the broad training included family work and individual work with adults with medical conditions.
Presently, Dr. Hood works at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital, where he is part of a newly developed center that focuses on promoting adherence and self-management in pediatric chronic disease. He works exclusively in type 1 diabetes and has active projects on the influence of psychological factors on diabetes management and interventions for depressed adolescents with type 1 diabetes.
