"An Existential Moment for Science"

“We have the greatest collection of medical intellects that’s been assembled in one place since Frederick Banting discovered insulin.”  –  John L. Eastman, Co-Chair of the Advisory Committee at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center


Mindful Eating:

"Food for Thought"

There is not a holiday feast, birthday celebration or meal of any kind, when people with diabetes don’t have to pay very close attention, not only to what they eat but how that food is potentially going to affect their blood sugar. This kind of “mindful eating” is both the challenge and the key to successful diabetes self-management.


Disaster Preparedness

Every Thursday morning at 9 AM, the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center hosts the Diabetes Conference, a lecture series that combines both research and clinical topics and includes speakers drawn from Columbia University faculty as well as visiting diabetes experts from around the country, and in some cases around the world.
