The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes needs your help!

The Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes has developed a research study to better understand our patients and facilitate new research opportunities. We would like your help to establish a strong endocrinology research program. Research helps doctors and nurses better diagnose, treat and prevent disease. It also aids in the development of new technologies and treatments.

While seeing your provider, a research coordinator may approach you to:

  • Introduce ongoing research projects in our Division.
  • Answer any questions you may have about research.
  • Ask permission to enter your child’s health information into a research registry.
  • Ask permission to be contacted in the future for projects related to your child’s health. You will always be given the option to participate in these projects on an individual basis.

Participating in research is completely voluntary and your decision will not affect your child’s care in any way. However, the information gathered will help improve care for our patients and our ability to conduct further research.

We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.
