Diabetes Institute: Telemedicine
Children with diabetes who live hours away from Gainesville have increased access to specialized treatment closer to home, thanks to the Telemedicine Program. The program connects health practitioners to patients through the Internet and telemedicine technology to improve care.
Telemedicine appointments are conducted via the HIPAA compliant version of Zoom, a videoconferencing platform that is suitable for use in health care.
Make an Appointment
- If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 352.265.DIAB (3422).
- Prior to your appointment, visit UF Health Telehealth for information on how to access your appointment.
- Contact the clinic in advance to learn how to upload data from your diabetes devices (meters, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors). Your diabetes doctor will need this information so you can have a meaningful visit. Plan to upload your data before the night before your visit.
Research at the UF Diabetes Institute takes place in both the clinic and in the laboratory. There are many clinical trials and studies in diabetes currently taking place at UF, including studies for family members, people with established type 1 diabetes, and studies for people with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes.
