Official online newsletter for the University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center
Here at the Kovler Diabetes Center, we are fortunate to have many
talented and devoted diabetes care professionals on our team. Two of
these individuals are Dianne Deplewski, MD, who has been caring for
children with diabetes and other endocrine conditions at the University
of Chicago for more than 15 years, and Julia Socke, RD, LDN, CDE, who
has been part of the Kovler team since February of 2012.
We are pleased to announce that beginning in August, Dr. Deplewski
and Julia will be expanding their clinical hours to see patients on
Mondays at the Kovler Diabetes Center in Hyde Park.
July, the University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center hosted the
second conference in North America for individuals and families with
monogenic diabetes, which was attended by almost 200 children and adults
from throughout the world, followed by a Continuing Medical Education
meeting for 120 physicians and health care professionals.
Hasenauer, MS, RN and Executive Director of Kovler said, "We were so
humbled by the opportunity to host an event that educates and inspires
others, and we were honored by the attendance of so many families and
to school season is a stressful time for every family, but perhaps even
more so for families with children who have diabetes. Whether your
child is heading to kindergarten or entering their freshman year of
college, here are some helpful tips to navigate the legal, logistical,
and social challenges that come with starting a new school year.
the recent months, Kovler has had many exciting opportunities in the
community, these ranging from sharing with families expert tips on
diabetes management to advocating support for diabetes care and
research. Kovler is immensely grateful for our welcoming community, and
hopes to continue our efforts to bring to our community members the most
quality resources in diabetes in the future. Some of the community
events that Kovler has been involved in are 2013 JDRF Family Day, ADA
Summer Camps, the University of Chicago's Farmers' Market, and the
annual ADA EXPO.
