Boston Children’s Hospital is home to one of the largest pediatric diabetes centers in North America. We’re also one of the few centers that offers a multidisciplinary program focused on the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. Our integrated team brings together pediatric endocrinologists, diabetes nurse educators, registered dietitians, and behavioral specialists who work with you and your child to develop an appropriate diabetes treatment or prevention plan.
Our program is part of the Optimal Weight for Life (OWL) Program, a multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care and developing innovative treatments for pediatric obesity and type 2 diabetes. Here, your child will receive additional tools and resources that will allow her to manage her type 2 diabetes or the risk factors that can lead her to get diabetes.
Rest assured that each one of our specialists has the expertise and the experience to guide you and your family from diagnosis through the many challenges of managing your child’s diabetes. And if there’s an emergency, you can rest easy knowing that we’re here for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
