The Pediatric Clinic offers complete education and support for children and adolescents with all types of diabetes. The Clinic is certified by the American Diabetes Association. Many of our doctors, nurses, dietitians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and social workers are Certified Diabetes Educators, who can provide families and patients with an understanding of type 1 diabetes and encourage their confidence in its day-to-day management.

The Adult Clinic continues to strive for excellence in diabetes care and research as it provides care for approximately 3,000 patients, age 18-75. Diabetes education is extremely vital to the Adult Clinic, whether the patient is newly diagnosed or has had diabetes for over 50 years. On staff, clinical social workers, a pharmacist, nurses, as well as dieticians, who are Certified Diabetes Educators who specialize in educating our patients on how to effectively self manage their diabetes and to troubleshoot obstacles they may face in their health.
