We pursue our mission through the following: •
Research Our researchers make breakthrough discoveries that help physicians and scientists around the world better understand diabetes, its causes and its genetic foundation. These discoveries can be applied to measurably improve the quality of life for diabetes patients.
Clinical Care Each diabetes patient is different. This shapes our approach to patient care at Kovler. Accurate and complete diagnosis, including genetic testing, is the foundation for our highly individualized treatment plans. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, educators and staff works to address the many ways that diabetes can affect each patient’s physical and emotional well-being.
Education At Kovler, we provide diabetes education for both professionals and patients. The best and brightest graduate students, fellows and doctors from around the globe come to collaborate with our researchers and clinicians. Research experiences include a strong clinical care component to connect lab discoveries to enhanced patient care. Our diabetes educators equip patients with the knowledge and understanding they need to most effectively manage their condition.
Community Our faculty, staff and active Leadership Board help Kovler stay connected to the greater Chicago community. Our partnerships with local organizations aim to enhance the health of the overall community and improve patient health outcomes.
