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

Minnie Ortiz, a patient in Boston Children’s Hospital’s Type 2 Diabetes Program in the Optimal Weight for Life Program, was featured on a PBS Web video series called Living with MyType2

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.


Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
- Sandra L. Fenwick, President and CEO
