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.
The Earth spans 24,859.82 miles from pole to pole. Before long, the reach of UF Health will too. No longer limited to solely serving Gainesville, the state or even the nation, more UF Health educators, researchers and students are working in the global community than ever before, solving global health problems and exchanging knowledge that will benefit the health of people at home and across the world.
