    Dr. Weigensberg holds an appointment as Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics in the Department of Pediatrics, USC Keck School of Medicine, and is the Director of Pediatric Endocrinology at Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center. He has a major interest in mind-body medicine and was certified in Interactive Guided ImagerySM through the Academy for Guided Imagery, Mill Valley, CA in 1999. Dr. Weigensberg received his medical school training at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and completed his pediatric residency and pediatric endocrinology fellowship training at Children’s Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University in Chicago. He was formerly on faculty at the University of Illinois School of Medicine.

    Dr. Weigensberg’s major research interest is in the interaction of psychological and physiological factors in the expression of metabolic disease in children and adolescents, particularly the role played by the body’s stress-response system in diabetes and metabolic disease risk. He is an integral clinical investigator in the USC Childhood Obesity Research Center, where he has served as Clinical Co-Principal Investigator (Co-PI) and Co-Investigator (Co-I) for multiple lifestyle interventions and other metabolic studies involving diabetes and chronic disease risk in overweight children and adolescents. He is Principle Investigator for the “Imagine Health” study, funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which developed and pilot-tested an innovative lifestyle intervention using guided imagery for Latino adolescents. He is currently Co-I on two projects of the USC Center for Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (USC C-TREC), as well as PI and Co-I for two separate projects in the USC National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) Center of Excellence in Minority Health in African American and Hispanic Children.
