The St. Joseph's Children's Hospital Pediatric Diabetes Program is dedicated to providing quality diabetes care, education, and support that integrate the family, primary care provider, school, and diabetes team.

We believe that education and support are the keys to helping families successfully manage their child's diabetes and to achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional health.

Our team consists of pediatric endocrinologists, advanced practice nurses, certified diabetic educator (CDE), registered nurses, and a certified diabetic educator nutritionist.


The Children's Hospital Diabetes Program provides care for children and adolescents with diabetes from birth to 21 years of age. We provide:

  • American Diabetes Association standards of care
  • Evidence-based diabetes management using intensive insulin therapy
  • Comprehensive Insulin Pump Program
  • Continuous glucose monitoring


If a child is admitted to our hospital for diabetes, our doctors, trained staff nurses and educators will work with the parent and the child on family diabetes education. Once discharged, the child and family will receive comprehensive diabetic education, which is designated to help the child and family work together to manage the child's diabetes.
