Children's Diabetes Program
 

Our Children's Diabetes Program is part of the Vanderbilt Eskind Diabetes Clinic. We provide diabetes care to more than 2,500 children with diabetes from Tennessee and nine surrounding states.

Caring for children and adults in a single clinic creates an environment that enhances diabetes care and research. Seamless transition of patients from pediatric to adult diabetes care is possible in this unique clinic setting. We invite you to learn more about diabetes and its care at the Eskind Diabetes Clinic.

Diabetes Overview
Diabetes is one word that describes many different diseases. In all of these diseases, the body is unable to make or use the hormone insulin to control blood sugar. We follow patients with all types of diabetes.

Our Team
Our Eskind Diabetes Clinic team has a large team to help you and your child manage diabetes. These dedicated health care providers include medical doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners, as well as social workers, dietitians, and specialists in child life. 

Vanderbilt diabetes' experts are working to find a cure. Our diabetes research programs include finding better ways to manage diabetes, understanding what causes diabetes and how to prevent or cure it, and conducting clinical trials to test new therapies.  

More than 100 professionals from the mid-South region, including physicians, nurse practitioners, school nurses and dietitians recently attended the 7th Annual Diabetes UPDATE Conference taught by clinicians from the Children’s Diabetes Clinic.
