Our pediatric diabetes program -~1200 patients to-date - has a significant interest in advanced diabetes technology . We also have a 3-year Pediatric Endocrine fellowship program - 1 fellow per year - in collaboration with the University of Florida.

Our program has had a heavy emphasis on clinical research with 25+ years track record of successful studies on the complex interactions of nutrients and hormones, specifically focusing on disorders of growth, disorders of puberty and type 1 diabetes. We have had steady funding from NIH, private foundations and industry. Our program is integrated with Wolfson Children's Hospital, our partner hospital, a state-of-the art 240 bed facility right next to our 11-story outpatient clinic on the banks of the beautiful St. John's river in Jacksonville. The hospital has a well-staffed Clinical Research Center where complex physiological and interventional studies can be carried out in children.
