Family-centered care

As parents ourselves, the expert diabetes and endocrinology team at Cook Children's understands your fears and works to ease them by making you a part of the team. From the very beginning, we will include you in the care of your child so that you can make the most informed decisions and choices that are right for your child and your family.

A major illness or long-term condition can impact the entire family physically, emotionally, and financially. So, in addition to our doctors and nurses, our family services programs offer support for the patient and the entire family. From Child Life specialists and social services to activities, sibling support programs and more, these programs are designed to help ease the way along your journey.

We're here to help.
