Biography

Dr. Rita Kalyani is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Core Faculty at the Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health, and Associate Faculty at the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research.  She graduated with an undergraduate degree from Harvard College and completed her medical degree, residency, and fellowship at Johns Hopkins.  She also obtained a Masters in Health Science degree in Clinical Investigation from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Dr. Kalyani is an active clinician and sees patients regularly in the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Diabetes Center as well as attends on the general endocrine consultation service.  She directs the Diabetes Management Service for Johns Hopkins’ Total Pancreatectomy Islet Auto Transplant Program.  She is NIH funded for her research, which focuses on the epidemiology of diabetes with aging and, specifically, investigates accelerated muscle loss and disability in older adults with diabetes.  Other research interests include gender differences in diabetes and heart disease and glycemic outcomes of islet autotransplantation. She is a member of the editorial board for the journal Diabetes Care. 

Dr. Kalyani is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, and serves on a national steering committee called “ACPNet: Diabetes” to improve the quality of diabetes care.  She is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Johns Hopkins Diabetes Guide for healthcare professionals available both as a book and electronically as a mobile application, now with over 200 topics. She is also the Editor of the Johns Hopkins Diabetes White Papers for patients and their families.
