She is currently board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Internal Medicine and Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism.

While a fellow at Stanford, Dr. Laws conducted medical research on the relations of diabetes and insulin resistance to cardiovascular risk factors. She was a co-investigator on the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS), a multi-center study funded by the NIH to examine these relations. Together with Gerald M. Reaven, MD, she edited a ground-breaking book on insulin resistance and its relation to cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Laws has published more than 50 scientific articles, abstracts and book chapters and has presented her research at national and international scientific meetings. For a list of publications, see CV.

Dr. Laws was a clinical faculty member at Stanford University School of Medicine for 12 years. While there, she cared for more than 1,500 patients including many with diabetes, heart disease and other chronic medical problems.
