*** About the Speaker ***

Dr. Osborn is a V.P. of Health and Behavioral Informatics at One Drop. She was Co-President of the Behavioral Research in Diabetes Group Exchange and a member of the National Diabetes Education Program’s Medication Adherence Task Group, and is currently Co-Chair of the Society of Behavioral Medicine’s Diabetes Special Interest Group. As a social psychologist trained at UConn with expertise in health communication and behavioral informatics, she has published extensively on the Information-Motivation-Behavioral skills model’s application to diabetes self-care promotion, the relationship between limited health literacy and numeracy skills and non-adherence and suboptimal glycemic control, and leveraging technologies to promote self-care. Last year she made a professional transition from a tenure-track position at Vanderbilt to begin working with One Drop, a start-up company specializing improving the lives of people with diabetes.
