The Hall Family Center for Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes Center at Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai is at the forefront of clinical care, education, and research.
Our multidisciplinary team, including physicians, nurse practitioner, nutritionist, social worker and psychologists, works with patients and families to provide comprehensive clinical care for a wide variety of endocrine disorders, including disorders of growth, diabetes, thyroid, puberty, and bone. Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai is a designated site for the New York State Newborn Screening Program for thyroid disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Patients are seen for consultation both in the Kravis Children's Hospital, in our pediatric endocrinology office in the Annenberg building and satellite practice in Westchester. We routinely collaborate with Mount Sinai specialists in surgery, nuclear medicine, neuroradiology, radiology, genetics, reproductive medicine, and the other 16 pediatric subspecialities at Mount Sinai.
The diabetes team provides a variety of programs for patients and parents throughout the year. Popular programming includes diabetes pattern management, pump and sensory nights, and the diabetes college preparatory course. Every summer, our division sponsors the only Barton Center for Diabetes Education day camp in New York City.
Our division is actively involved in both clinical and basic research in the areas of growth, diabetes and metabolism, adrenal steroid disorders, and thyroid disease. Our physicians regularly contribute to peer-reviewed publications and present findings at national and international meetings.
In addition to our commitment to patient care and research, we have a vested interest in medical education and are training future physicians in pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology. Graduates of our ACGME-approved fellowship program are eligible to apply for board certification in pediatric endocrinology.
