Joslin Diabetes Center adds first affiliate in California at Irvine Medical Center

BOSTON Joslin Diabetes Center, the world leader in diabetes research and care, announced today its affiliation with University of California, Irvine Medical Center. Located at Gottschalk Medical Plaza on the UC Irvine campus, Joslin Diabetes Center at University of California, Irvine will offer the latest advances for treating diabetes and its complications, as well as patient education and research. The venture represents the first time Joslin has affiliated with an institution in California.

More than 18 million Americans have diabetes, which is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Diabetes can lead to many medical complications, including heart attack, stroke, blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure and poor circulation.

"There is an epidemic of diabetes in Orange County and throughout the nation," said Dr. Ralph W. Cygan, UCI Medical Center's chief executive officer. "By teaming up the expertise of Joslin Diabetes Center with UCI Medical Center physicians, researchers and staff, we are now well on our way to developing a world-class diabetes center in Southern California."

Joslin Diabetes Center at UCI, supported in part by a $210,000 donation from the Pediatric Adolescent Diabetes Research Education Foundation, offers easy access to a wide range of specialists for adults and children. Among them are endocrinologists, ophthalmologists, nephrologists, cardiovascular specialists, neurologists and certified diabetes educators. The treatment team is further complemented by dietitians and mental-health practitioners. Additionally, UCI Medical Center offers access to specialized services of interest to people with diabetes, such as pancreas and kidney transplantation and orthopedic foot surgery.

"We aspire to bring the best care to our patients and establish a high-quality infrastructure for our researchers," said Dr. Ping Wang, UCI endocrinologist and director of Joslin Diabetes Center at UCI. "Joslin Diabetes Center
