Dr. Kenneth Izuora, the UNLV Medicine Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, was awarded a Top Doctor 2020 designation in the Endocrinology category by Health Care Quarterly magazine.

About half of Izuora’s patients -- his research focuses on diabetes and its complications -- have either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

As an associate professor in the UNLV School of Medicine Department of Internal Medicine, Izuora sees research breakthroughs coming in the management of diabetes.

“Over the course of my career, I have seen so much change and anticipate even more,” he says. “This includes new medications and devices that have resulted in improved quality of life expectancy for our patients. This is why it is important to invest our efforts in research.”
