There’s news. And then there’s news. The news that comes out of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center can change lives. For people with diabetes and those who care for them, and about them. So it makes sense to stay on top of all the latest. Both the news the Center puts out through this site, and the frequent media coverage we get based on our important and exciting findings and the authoritative voices that speak for us.
It is highly likely that the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine will be available in the coming weeks for children ages 5-11 years. The Berrie Center recommendsall patients in this age group receive the vaccine. This will not only protect the child but also reduce the spread of Covid-19 to others.
There is a new face on the Type 1 clinical research team at the Berrie Center: research nurse Jamie Hyatt. She comes to the Berrie Center from the International Diabetes Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a wealth of knowledge about diabetes research and diabetes technology.
There was no stopping Summer Fun at the Berrie Center. The dynamic duo of art therapist Cara Lampron and pediatric coordinator Kindra Matthews worked their magic once again to make a week on Zoom feel like everyone was together in the same room.
Double congratulations to Jacqueline Lonier, M.D. on receiving the advisor position on the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) Clinical Centers & Programs Interest Group Leadership Team, as well as joining the Advisory Group of the Women's Interprofessional Network (WIN) of the ADA.
