Afreen Idris Shariff
Assistant Professor of Medicine

During my training at Duke, I developed a keen interest in understanding more about novel cancer therapies and its effect on the endocrine system. I currently see patients with patients with general endocrine disorders and focus heavily on immunotherapy associated endocrinopathies. I work specifically in the areas of streamlined and evidence based clinical care in collaboration with oncology. My research involves identifying factors that predispose patients to develop these immune related adverse events.
In addition, I focus on outcomes of patients with diabetes who belong to different ethnic groups, specifically South Asians. I like to put culture in the center of the discussion when discussing lifestyle changes with patients. This makes it easier and more acceptable for patients to incorporate lifestyle changes which are critical in managing diabetes effectively.
