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.


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
