And another reminder: A few months ago, I started a new Google+ page for anyone interested in #diabetes  to find each other. It's for PWD, their family members and friends, health professionals dealing with diabetes, folks with diabetic pets, and those working in diabetes-related organizations.

Come on over to the Blue Circle and "sign in" then others looking for folks interested in the Big D will have a place to start...

I am related to a Bill Quick - who is from the Homecreek, Va. Area. Is that you? My grandmother was Maude Miller -she was the sister of your late dad-and your aunt I suppose. The reason I am so passionate about diabetes-is from 20 years working as a climical pharmacist in the retail setting. I wish I could do more to help this situation-Education, Education, Education.

Story
Introduction

Bill is an endocrinologist, insulin pumper, and medical writer. He is a nationally-known expert in diabetes education, and is a past president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. He is board-certified in both internal medicine and in endocrinology and metabolism, and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and a Fellow of the American College of Endocrinology.

Websites

D-is-for-Diabetes.com -- A fabulous website for people with diabetes to learn and to share. By health professionals. For beginners, experts, and everyone in between!

Bill has been a contributor to HealthCentral's diabetes section since 2006. He also started and ran another diabetes website from 1995 to 2009, the Diabetes Monitor.

Bill and his wife Steph also have a personal website, Katz & Dawgs Unlimited, http://www.kanddu.com

Professional Career

Bill has had 30+ years of clinical experience including over 12 years in pharmaceutical medicine with Parke-Davis, Pfizer, Aventis, sanofi-aventis, Schering-Plough, and from 2007 to 2011 with i3, where he was most recently Vice President and head of Drug Safety. He had previously served as a pharmacovigilance officer for drugs in development as well as for marketed products. He has been the lead safety officer for Rezulin (troglitazone), the safety officer for the clinical teams directing phase IV studies of Lantus (insulin glargine) and phase III studies and subsequent submissions for Apidra (insulin glulisine), Exubera (inhaled insulin), and Alvesco (ciclesonide, an inhaled steroid). He also participated in trials providing sNDAs for Actonel (risedronate), and numerous other products in early development.

Prior to joining the pharmaceutical industry, he served in the US Public Health Service in Alaska, was Associate Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of South Dakota, and was in private practice in endocrinology, with an emphasis on diabetes care.

Personal Life

Bill was born in 1943. He attended college at the College of Wooster in Ohio (1960-64), then medical school at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn NY (1964-68). His internship, residency, and endocrinology fellowship were at the University of Missouri in Columbia MO (1968-1972). He was in the private practice of endocrinology in SD, IA, and MO from 1974 to 1998, and then entered the pharmaceutical industry in 1998, where he has worked in MI and NJ before moving to SC.

In 2005, Bill developed diabetes, and immediately started on a basal/bolus insulin program. He switched to an insulin pump in June, 2008, and started on CGM in September, 2010.

He describes his hobbies as throwing frisbees for his two dogs, and writing about diabetes. And on summer weekends, he and Steph will frequently be found on their sailboat, daysailing in Charleston's harbor.
