About the Washington Nationals Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National Medical Center
In March 2007, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation committed $1.25 million in cash and $750,000 in assets as the lead gift in the creation of a Pediatric Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC). The facility will help CNMC continue to provide the best pediatric diabetes care in the DC area with new state-of-the-art outpatient treatment rooms and an education center that will serve to teach families about diabetes management and provide resources for further information.

Children’s National Medical Center’s Childhood and Adolescent Diabetes Program is the preeminent pediatric diabetes program in the Washington Metropolitan area. Children’s cares for more than 1,500 children and adolescents with Type 1, Type 2 and other forms of diabetes. There are over 4500 visits from patients coming from the District, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania to seek treatment at Children’s. No child is ever turned away. All patients initially diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are medically treated and taught management skills on site at Children’s National Medical Center. Children’s comprehensive team includes physicians, certified diabetes educators, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, and psychology and social work services.
