Sherita Hill Golden's research interests focus on two areas: endogenous sex hormones as risk factors for cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and insulin resistance in post-menopausal women; and mental health complications of diabetes and the biological, hormonal, and behavioral factors that might explain these associations. Her health services research focuses on understanding and eliminating diabetes health disparities and implementing and evaluating systems interventions to improve patient safety and quality of care in hospitalized patients with diabetes.
Golden serves as the principal investigator of the Johns Hopkins site of the Diabetes Prevention Program Outcome Study and is an elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians.
