Helping Children and Teens Thrive with Diabetes

One of the best ways to prevent complications is to learn how to manage diabetes. That's why, at Joslin, we provide age-appropriate educational programs for children and teens. We also equip school nurses and other caregivers with the education programs and tools they need to help care for children with diabetes.

The Power in Learning

It can be stressful for a child or teen to be diagnosed with diabetes. But, with proper care and attention, diabetes is a disease that can be managed. Joslin's team can help children, teens, and their caregivers be informed - early on.
