Hadassah Doctors in Forefront of Diabetes Prevention and Treatment

Thursday, Jul 19 2018

“Diabetes is on track to become the largest epidemic in human history.” So says Dr. Gil Leibowitz, incoming head of the Hadassah Diabetes Center at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, and himself a diabetic since the age of seven. Whether it’s type 1, often referred to as juvenile diabetes, or the much more common type 2, an adult-onset disease, diabetes currently affects some 420 million people around the world. That number is expected to jump to 640 million in just 20 years.

To read about how physicians and researchers at Hadassah are using education, research and new technologies to combat this modern-day scourge, turn to “The Diabetes Epidemic” in the July/August 2018 edition of Hadassah Magazine or click on this link here.

Inclined to dance with joy at weddings, this twinkle-eyed, bearded Hassid increased the tempo in the presence of his long-ago pals.
