Meet Jamie R. Wood, MD

My name is Jamie Wood, and I'm a pediatrician, pediatric diabatologist at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles. I'm the Director of the Clinical Diabetes program at Children's. I became interested in diabetes when I was a medical student and had the opportunity to attend a diabetes screening for children who live with diabetes and really fell in love with the kids who live with this day to day. I was in awe of their strength and their courage and how they could go about their day and have fun and be normal kids living with diabetes. When I'm not taking care of kids with diabetes, I'm chasing after my two children. I have a 2-year old boy and an 8-year old girl. We love to camp, hike, and go to the beach. And we spend a lot of time at gymnastics meets.
