The Diabetes Center at CHOP is pleased to announce the launch of its newest resource — Online Diabetes Education — to make learning about diabetes and diabetes self-management as easy as possible for adolescent and teens with diabetes and their families.
The Diabetes Center for Children (DCC) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is dedicated to excellence in patient care, education and research. More than 2,000 children with diabetes are regular patients of the Diabetes Center, making us one of the largest centers in the country dedicated to the treatment and study of diabetes in children.
We believe that diabetes is managed best when there is a partnership between the family and the Diabetes Center team. This partnership encourages independence, self-reliance and collaboration, which increase the likelihood that a child with diabetes will experience a normal and healthy life.

The daily demands of managing a child with diabetes may seem overwhelming, but the staff at the DCC can help. We believe that the best way to manage diabetes is to have families and care providers working in concert. We will help you to take control of diabetes by supporting you as you become an expert in your child's diabetes. Learn more about our programs and services»
