Congratulations to David Allen, MD, Tracy Bekx, MD, and Allison Pollock, MD, who recently received a two-year grant for their project "Improving Access to Quality Pediatric Diabetes Care through Telemedicine." This grant, in the amount of $162,465, aims to tackle the logistical, technical, consent/privacy, and multiple other challenges needed to establish regional telemedicine as a key adjunct to the UW Health Pediatric Diabetes Care program. Commitment to the success of this endeavor will enhance and ease patient access to expert diabetes care and education, increase adherence to standard-of-care follow-up, reduce patient costs, and strengthen our competitive reputation as the center for excellence for children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in Wisconsin.
