Our Mission

Caring for individuals with diabetes throughout their lifespan—from infants to adults—is our mission at The University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center.

We pursue our mission through the following:

Diagnosis
Comprehensive, complete and accurate diagnosis, including genetic testing capabilities

Treatment
Each treatment plan is highly individualized to meet each patient’s specific needs. We use the most effective and innovative medications and technologies to stabilize blood sugar and minimize long-term complications.

Complications
Our multidisciplinary approach addresses the many ways that diabetes can affect a person’s physical and emotional well-being.

Prevention
Preventing diabetes before it begins is the most effective intervention. Research programs at the Kovler Diabetes Center target people at high risk for diabetes, including African-Americans and Hispanics.

Education
Through one-on-one training and group classes recognized by the American Diabetes Association, we teach all our patients about everything from monitoring blood glucose, to healthy eating, to using insulin pumps and glucose meters.
