The Pediatric Diabetes Resource Center is part of the Children's Hospital of Illinois and consists of a team including pediatric endocrinologists, advanced practice nurses, nurses, dieticians, and clinical social workers.

In accordance with the Illinois Care of Students with Diabetes Act, effective 2010, we provide training for staff to be delegated care aides through this Diabetes Education Program. Delegated care aides are school employees who agree to receive training in diabetes care and to assist students in implementing their diabetes care plan.
