St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation
The Department of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children’s Hospital have been at the forefront of endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes research since 1920s. St. Louis Children’s Hospital was the first pediatric institution in the United States to utilize insulin to treat children with diabetes mellitus.
Beginning in the late 1960’s, we were one of the first pediatric programs in the country to combine patient care, research and training efforts across endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. This approach has now become a standard format at other pediatric academic medical centers.
