Boston Children's patient featured on PBS series about type 2 diabetes

Minnie Ortiz, a patient of Children’s Hospital Boston’s Optimal Weight for Life Program, was featured on a new PBS Web video series called Living with My Type 2. Here’s her introductory video, where she talks about not even knowing what type 2 diabetes was before she was diagnosed with it and how, after the death of her mother left her without someone to talk with, she writes in her journal to express the concerns she has about her health.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
