The UF Diabetes Institute
Oct 14, 2014
Last week, we announced the creation of the UF Diabetes Institute. Given the many fundamental contributions of our faculty to this field over the years, the UF Diabetes Institute designation was long overdue. At a time when much attention is appropriately being directed to newly created “preeminence programs” at UF, including programs at UF Health, it is important that we celebrate and invest in faculty who have created academic and clinical programs that are already preeminent.
Ten years ago this month, UF Health Shands Hospital opened its Level 1 trauma center, a unit staffed with the experts and equipment needed to take care of patients with the most deadly and devastating injuries. Now, more than 24,000 patients later, we’re celebrating some of the lives that have been saved as a result of this care.
