Calvin Wu, Medical Doctor, Endocrinology
Calvin graduated from the Keck School of Medicine of USC, completed a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, and subspecialized in adult endocrinology at Harbor-UCLA. His experience caring for a diverse and often underserved patient population across the entire age spectrum has impressed upon him the limitations of a one-size-fits-all approach to medical care.
Calvin appreciates that diabetes is a highly personal disease that can touch or be touched by nearly every facet of life. He also recognizes that patients are the ones living with the disease 24/7, while their physicians spend only a tiny fraction of that time managing it. He is fundamentally invested in Steady's mission to empower individuals with an understanding of how their day-to-day life choices impact their blood glucose, and hopes to serve as a conduit for their continual learning and improvement.
