Dr. Short is an Associate Professor and the CHF Choctaw Nation Endowed Chair in Pediatric Endocrinology.   He earned graduate degrees in exercise physiology (MS, Purdue University) and human bioenergetics (PhD, Ball State University) and completed post-doctoral training in endocrinology and metabolism (Mayo Clinic).  Since 2006 when he joined OUHSC, his research has examined the impact of exercise on insulin sensitivity and vascular health.  The goal is to identify the most effective lifestyle approaches to prevent or reverse the cardiometabolic risk in children and young adults, thereby limiting a potential lifetime of pathology and medical burden.
