Stony Brook Children’s Hospital Hosting Diabetes Night for Teens

Diabetes night

Pediatric and Adult Endocrinology’s “Teens and Transition Diabetes Night” offers an opportunity for tweens and teens (ages 12 to 18) to meet new friends and learn how to become more independent.

The event, which will be held on Tuesday, January 23, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm at the new Stony Brook Medicine Advanced Specialty Care facility (500 Commack Road, Commack, NY), is open to the public, and you do not need to be a Stony Brook Children’s Hospital patient to attend.

Dr. Jennifer Osipoff, pediatric endocrinologist, will review diabetes self-care, including hands-on practice using pumps and injections. Dr. Marina Charitou, an adult endocrinologist, will meet with parents to discuss how to help their kids transition to adult care and attend college with diabetes.

To register, please contact Barbara Hakimi at (631) 444-9325 or via email, barbara.hakimi@stonybrookmedicine.edu.
