Dr. Matthew Corcoran of Margate, director of endocrinology AtlantiCare, was featured in the new edition of Diabetes Forecast: The Healthy Living Magazine as a "Diabetes All-Star” and is on the publication’s 2016 list of “People to Know.”

Corcoran is the founder and chief executive of the Diabetes Training Camp, which is held each year in Lancaster, Pa.

He was described as one of the nation’s premiere diabetes educators in the article, according to a press release from the camp. Locally, he meets with clients at APG Endocrinology in the AtlantiCare Health Park in Egg Harbor Township.

At Corcoran’s Diabetes Training Camp, adults and teens with diabetes learn to be active and athletic while taking better control of their disease, the release states. The camp is based on the principles of education, training and community and provides fitness, multi-sport training, education, nutrition and one-on-one consultations with experts in the fields of diabetes management, mental skills, nutrition, and coaching and exercise physiology.

“DTC is a unique, innovative and inspirational camp experience for adults and teens living with diabetes,” stated Corcoran. “As a full-time endocrinologist and exercise specialist, my work is fueled by the passion to help people with diabetes realize fitness goals and athletic dreams.”

Corcoran has worked in the Atlanticare Physician’s Group Endocrinology practice for six years and is on the board of the South Jersey Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
