Twitter Chat About Children with Diabetes


U.S. News is set to release its 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals this summer, highlighting the nation’s top hospitals in 10 pediatric specialties, including Diabetes & Endocrinology. Because diabetes affects one in 400 children and adolescents, we've asked parents of children with diabetes and experts in the field to join a conversation about how they have managed diabetes and reduced its risks, and ways children can cope with medical issues and lifestyle changes. The chat's 243 participants sent more than 1,000 tweets in the course of the discussion.
