Diabetes and obesity have much in common: They’re both chronic health conditions that are often linked, are often preventable, and are considered epidemics. Nemours Children's researchers and specialists at our pediatric labs in the Delaware Valley and Florida investigate diabetes, obesity, growth and nutrition from several perspectives — including biological, genetic and behavioral.

We are dedicated to finding answers because every child deserves the best chance to grow into a healthy adult. Learn about our findings and what we’re working on now.
