Dr. Joshua J. Joseph is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Previously, he was the Christopher D. Saudek M.D. Fellow in Diabetes Research at Johns Hopkins Hospital and completed his internal medicine residency at Yale University School of Medicine. He is a board-certified, endocrinologist, trained as a diabetes epidemiologist and clinical researcher.
Dr. Joseph’s National Institutes of Health funded research at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center focuses on societal, epidemiological and biological determinants of type 2 diabetes and obesity particularly among racial/ethnic minorities. This includes evaluating 1) the role of classical risk factors in the development and treatment of type 2 diabetes including physical activity, dietary intake, smoking, cholesterol, blood pressure, and body weight; and 2) the role of novel risk factors in the development of diabetes including the stress and blood pressure adrenal hormones, cortisol and aldosterone. In the next phases of his research he will further evaluate novel findings from epidemiology using population level interventions in Ohio communities with community partners like the African American Male Wellness Walk Initiative.
Dr. Joseph’s clinical focus is the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. He is an active member of the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association and Endocrine Society serving on a number of national committees including the Endocrine Society Clinical Affairs Core Committee and the American Heart Association 2020 Guideline Metrics Committee.
