Ueberroth Program for Women with Diabetes
In partnership with Hoag Women's Health Institute, the Allen Diabetes
Center provides services for women with diabetes throughout their lives.
Special diabetes-related health concerns are addressed by this program
with services targeted to adolescents, women who are planning pregnancies,
pregnant women and women in later life.
The Ueberroth Program for Women with Diabetes at the Allen Diabetes Center
dramatically enhances the continuity of care available to women in the
community. Funded through a generous grant from the Peter and Ginny Ueberroth
Foundation, this program helps the Allen Diabetes Center ensure that all
women, regardless of their financial circumstances, have access to world-class
diabetes care before, during and after pregnancy.
Gestational diabetes (GDM), or diabetes that first develops during pregnancy, may develop in up to
7 percent of the population. The Ueberroth Program allows the Allen Diabetes
Center to expand its award winning
Sweet Success program so that it benefits many more mothers throughout Orange County.
