Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center
The Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center at OHSU is the region’s only clinic that brings pediatric and adult diabetes care together in one state-of-the-art facility. Patients receive all the expertise and support they need to manage their lifelong relationship with diabetes under one roof.
Patients meet regularly with their endocrinologist, a nurse and a dietician, as well as other members of the multidisciplinary support team. Depending on their condition, this could include an exercise physiologist, a counselor, a podiatrist, or an OHSU specialist in a wide range of health disciplines associated with diabetes. This team works with patients to formulate a more holistic treatment plan, including support and tools needed to control their disease.
With the rampant increase in diabetes patients and the exciting new breakthroughs in technology and treatments, it’s time for a new approach to diabetes care. Made possible by a unique partnership between OHSU, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and the Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, the Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center is leading the way.
Gifts to the Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center will support the people and programs that ensure the best care for Oregonians with this devastating disease. Philanthropy will help OHSU recruit and retain additional top specialists in diabetes and related conditions, and to strengthen its outstanding patient education and support services — essential components of disease management that too often are not reimbursed by insurance companies.
Your support can create new hope for diabetes patients. Your support can help make the best even better. Your support can help change the world.
