Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Programs

Joslin's pediatric clinic is a place of incalculable expertise and hope. We help children and families find a new normal,” says Lori Laffel, M.D., M.P.H., who heads Joslin’s Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Section. “We provide care and hope, and we help set care standards for all children, teens and young adults with diabetes.”

We know children

"We want the children to enjoy coming here. If they adopt a positive attitude when young, they will be more likely to approach clinical care in a positive way throughout their lives,” Dr. Laffel says. “We also help children feel they are not alone and to view diabetes care as part of their daily routine, rather than a burden.”

Diabetes at School

Parents of children with diabetes need to make sure their children get the care they need in school and day care.
