Christina Roth, Chief Executive Officer and Founder

Christina graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, with both departmental honors in Psychology and “honors of greatest distinction” from the Commonwealth Honors College. She is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society, the Psi Chi National Honor Society, and the Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society, and was the recipient of a Commonwealth College honors research grant to fund her thesis research looking at strengths and competencies in adopted adolescents which Christina then presented at 3 regional conferences and the International Conference on Adoption Research (ICAR3) in Leiden, the Netherlands in 2010. At the age of 14 Christina was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, which has fueled her passion in helping other people living with the disease. In her junior year at UMass, Christina founded the College Diabetes Network (CDN) both as a national organization and as a local chapter at UMass. For her work with CDN, Christina was the recipient of the Bateman Family Memorial Scholarship, the 21st Century Leader Award, the Class of 1941 Humanitarian Award, and the UMass Amherst recipient of the Massachusetts governor’s “29 Who Shine” award. After graduating in May 2011, Christina worked as a research assistant at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA, before transitioning to running CDN full-time in 2012. Christina was appointed Chief Executive Officer of CDN in January of 2013, and also spends some of her time working with the research department of the T1D Exchange.
