The Yale Children’s Diabetes Program provides comprehensive diabetes care and education with a special emphasis on the use of technology-based tools as well as clinically relevant research. The program provides care to children of all ages, whether they are newly diagnosed with diabetes or have had the condition for years.
The Yale Children’s Diabetes Program’s first responsibility is to children with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and their families. The goal of its family-centered care is to set the standard for the treatment of children with T1D around the world. An essential means to achieve the goal of optimal care of childhood diabetes is to carry out cutting-edge research aimed at developing and evaluating improved treatments for T1D. Through patient-oriented diabetes research, the program will to transform the landscape of diabetes care and provide patients with a far healthier future.
Advances in treatment of childhood diabetes will be slowed and new medications and devices will be wasted if there are not enough pediatric clinicians and investigators. Yale Children’s Diabetes Program is committed to training the next generation of pediatric practitioners and researchers in the treatment and study of T1D.
