Endocrinologist Dan Streja, M.D., whose parents were physicians, always envisioned he'd pursue a career in medicine. While it was the science that drove him to his career, it was his interaction with patients that fueled it.
Dr. Streja trained in endocrinology and then taught medical school in Canada prior to moving to the United States in 1979. He is the co-director of the Lipid Clinic, Section of Endocrinology, the co-director of cardiovascular risk prevention, Diabetes Clinic, and co-director of cardiovascular prevention clinic, Section of Cardiology, at the Greater Los Angeles Veteran Affairs Healthcare System in West Los Angeles.
In addition, Dr. Streja is a clinical professor in the sections of Endocrinology and Cardiology in the department of Medicine at UCLA Medical School. He continues to be active in research, has published 46 papers, has co-authored four textbooks and is medical director of Infosphere Clinical Studies where he oversees research studies related to endocrinology and cardiovascular prevention.
