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

at UCI will become the focal point in California for developing innovative approaches to the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications."

For instance, UCI researchers are helping to solve the burgeoning public-health problem of the increase of children with type 2 diabetes. Previously considered a disease of middle aged and older adults, type 2 diabetes is associated with overeating and inactivity. In an effort to decrease the incidence of the disease, they're investigating innovative ways to increase physical activity and optimize nutrition education programs in schools.

Additionally, Wang and his colleagues discovered a hormone similar to insulin that prevents heart muscle from dying. The findings suggest that gene therapy might help treat a variety of heart diseases, as well as stave off heart damage that is common among diabetes patients.

"Over 1.5 million people in California have diabetes, and statistically, a third of them don't know they have the disease," said Dr. John W. Hare, director of Joslin's Affiliated Centers Program. "We look forward to working with the professionals at the UCI Medical Center to reach people in California with a proactive approach to diabetes prevention and treatment."

A grand-opening event is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 21, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center at 100 Academy Drive on the UCI campus. Tours of Joslin Diabetes Center at UCI will follow a luncheon program featuring speakers from UCI and Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Mass. Diabetes patient Sean Busby, 19, of Mission Viejo, will give a keynote address about his challenge of training for the Olympic snowboarding team while managing diabetes.
