Transition classes for adolescents with diabetes

Adolescence is a time of transition from childhood to adulthood. This process can be an exciting and often trying time for all involved.

The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Diabetes team wants to assist families in this transition. Our focus will be on helping our patients assume responsibility for their health over time.

Classes may be scheduled during clinic visits or by calling the Diabetes Clinic at (414) 266-2861. All classes are located at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, 8915 W. Connell Ct., Milwaukee, WI 53226. Maps and directions.

Note: Due to the sensitive topics that will be discussed during class, parents and teens will be separated. We do discourage bringing younger siblings (12 and under).
