It's All About The Kids

Sabrina's Story

Sabrina first came to the IWS Children's Clinic when she was 9-years old for a school physical. Our Medical Director, Dr. Karen Walker, noticed some early warning signs for diabetes, and referred her to our nutritional counselor. Three months later, Sabrina and her family are enthusiastically making healthier food choices based on what they learned during a series of counseling sessions, and Sabrina’s blood-sugar levels have improved dramatically.
