The Supporting Emerging Adults with Diabetes (SEAD) Program

SEAD Program

Helping young adults with type 1 diabetes make the transition to adult care

The Supporting Emerging Adults with Diabetes program, part of the Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism at Montefiore and Einstein, is a comprehensive program dedicated to the care of young adults, aged 18-35 years, living with type I diabetes (T1D).

We provide young adults with cutting edge medicine and access to the latest diabetes technologies in addition to an array of events and programming that address the struggles and successes of living each day with type 1 diabetes.

At SEAD, you’ll find a multidisciplinary team offering comprehensive and compassionate care designed for young adults with T1D. The program includes support that addresses not only medical and nutritional needs, but also the psychosocial and developmental needs unique to this time in addition to peer support. We have physicians, nurse practitioners, a dietician, psychologist, technology navigator, and a social needs coordinator. With SEAD, young adults with T1D will find the individualized support and comfort they need to work toward positive, long-term outcomes in quality of life, and improved health.
