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.”
Joslin cares for the majority of children with diabetes in eastern Massachusetts and more than a quarter of all children with diabetes in New England.
As part of the Joslin Clinic our patients benefit from JoslinCare™ standards for individualized diabetes care.
JoslinCare is our medically-proven program that maps for each patient and family a customized approach to the care, education and support they need to stay on a lifelong pathway to health.
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.”
