Groundbreaking Diabetes Minor

Legendary UCSF Nurse Peggy Huang (at right) is honored in the establishment of an innovative program of study in the School of Nursing, the Madison Clinic Peggy Huang Diabetes Nurse Fellows Program.

An epidemic is sweeping the nation and world: diabetes. Almost 26 million children and adults in the United States — and 346 million worldwide — have the disease. Another 79 million Americans are considered to have pre-diabetes.

Thanks to a generous $1.5 million gift from a member of the Diabetes Center Leadership Council who has a child with diabetes, UCSF will be among the first in the country to educate and train nurses specifically to care for diabetes patients across their lifespan, by establishing a new academic minor in diabetes at the UCSF School of Nursing.
