At The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, Dr. Klein serves as Associate Program Director of the Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program, teaching and mentoring young physicians. Dr. Klein’s clinical focus is adherence in children and adolescents with diabetes, particularly the role of the family in maintaining adherence to treatment protocols. Her work aims to improve understanding of the barriers to adherence.

A graduate of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Klein was a pediatric resident, chief resident and pediatric endocrinology fellow at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, where she learned the importance of long-term patient care. It was at Mount Sinai that Dr. Klein developed a deep interest in growth disorders, diabetes and hyperglycemia in critical illness. She also realized that two of her interests--resident education and patient empowerment--were similar: they both require the educator to help patients recognize their strengths to improve themselves.
