Samar Hafida, MD, spent time as a Post-Doctoral Fellow studying the effect of lead on glucose metabolism her training in Endocrinology. Dr. Hafida's work in this field led her to become interested in how external factors such as various chemicals, including nutrients, influence the regulation of homeostasis. 

Dr. Hafida's main interests lie in diabetes and obesity. By completing a fellowship in obesity and clinic nutrition, Dr. Hafida was able to gain further experience in treating weight disorders which led her to focus on treating diabetes using a weight-centered approach. Thus, her interest is focused on using methods such as various low calorie diets, weight loss drugs and metabolic (bariatric) surgery for the management of the diabetic patient.
