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.
The Berrie Center Summer Fun Program might have been held on Zoom this year, but it was every bit as energizing and uplifting as in years past for the 27 children with diabetes who were in virtual attendance.
Berrie Center patient Morgan Panzirer, 19, is tired of listening to all the misconceptions about type 1 diabetes (T1D). She wants everyone to know she didn’t get T1D at the age of six by eating too much candy, and the insulin pump she wears is not a 3D sticker!
On June 4, the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center presented an informative webinar for people with diabetes and their loved ones about the latest information on staying healthy during the COVID-19 crisis.
The Berrie Center, along with the rest of the biomedical community at Columbia and around the world, remains in an unprecedented situation. For understandable reasons, we have been obliged to cease on-site ambulatory care, as well as basic and translational research.
During the Coronavirus pandemic Berrie Center office visits are being converted to Video Visits. Video Visits are a very effective and easy way to meet with your doctor and diabetes educator, and it is a good time to check in and let us help you with your diabetes management.
