Dr. Baker currently serves as an assistant clinical professor and director of diabetes education. She is  mainly a clinician but thoroughly enjoys her teaching role in clinic as well as in the inpatient setting. In her role as director of diabetes education, she helps coordinate programs to improve how we support our patients with diabetes and gets to work closely with our educators.

Her favorite aspect of working at Indiana University is the collaborative nature of the group and all the opportunities to attend conferences.
