Diabetes Center

The Pediatric Diabetes Care Center at Valley Children’s provides expert diagnosis and management of infants, children and adolescents. Children who are inpatients at the Hospital can be referred to the practice for diabetes management. We bring a multidisciplinary approach to patient care; in addition to pediatric endocrinologists, the practice is staffed with certified diabetic educators, social workers, and dietitians. Nurses, nurse practitioners, and dietitians in the practice are Certified Diabetes Educators.

Along with providing excellent care, the Diabetes Team conducts four educational sessions on diabetes self-management with patients and families, and two additional advanced education sessions. The sessions consist of individualized education plans and resource materials that measure patient progress.

The Pediatric Diabetes Care Center at Valley Children’s was awarded the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Education Recognition. The American Diabetes Association is the largest and most widely known organization in the field of diabetes. The ADA Education Recognition distinguishes healthcare organizations that provide quality diabetes self-management education services.
