After earning a B.A. with honors from the University of California, Riverside, and M.A. from Claremont Graduate School in government, guest editor David Mendosa went to work for the U.S. government. During a 15-year career as a Foreign Service officer with the U.S. foreign aid program he served 11 years in Washington and four years in Africa. Subsequently, he became a journalist, initially specializing in writing about small business. After he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in February 1994, he segued into writing about that condition. He started his “On-line Diabetes Resources” Web site in February 1995 when there were only two other Web sites dealing with diabetes. It lists and links all diabetes-related sites. David's diabetes home page is at http://www.mendosa.com/diabetes.htm.
He now focuses on writing about diabetes for a variety of publications. He writes a regular column for the Web site of the American Diabetes Association, which calls him a “noted Internet observer.”
