She is associate editor of the journal Diabetes Care and author of The Complete Weight Loss Workbook. Dr. Wylie-Rosett has helped the American Diabetes Association and American Heart Association develop nutrition-related recommendations and position statements.
Dr. Wylie-Rosett is now conducting a clinical trial evaluating how a comprehensive approach to family weight management affects biomarkers that are known to reflect cardiometabolic health. She has also been an investigator in multicenter trials that changed the way healthcare is administered to millions of people, including the Diabetes Prevention Program, the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and the Women’s Health Initiative.
