The Kovler Diabetes Center ’s InTransit program is a clinical care and education program for adolescents, teens and young adults with diabetes. InTransit’s goal is to empower teens and young adults to manage their diabetes and to help them create a healthy future. The InTransit program includes pediatric and adult endocrinologists working side-by-side at the Kovler clinic to help patients transition their diabetes care and responsibilities from their parents and family to themselves.
After four years being one of the only teen diabetes programs in the U.S., Kovler realize the need to address the concerns and needs of teens with diabetes. To do this, the University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center has created the opportunity to blend diabetes education with fun and support to help diabetic teens cope with, and to learn more about their condition. The Kovler teen advisory panel and discussion group will also allow us to learn from the teens more about how we can improve our inpatient and outpatient diabetes services, as well as better ways we can address their needs throughout the day.
Drawing from Kovler’s nationally recognized diabetes programs, physicians, psychologists and diabetes educations, and by actively participating in enjoyable and bonding activities, the teen advisory panel and discussion group will be a very enlightening experience for both the Kovler staff and our teen patients.
Any Kovler patient age 13 to 17 can join the panel at any time and will have the opportunity to participate in various projects and events that may occur throughout the year. Fill out the simple form below and you will be contacted regarding your interests.
