D43 Thailand Training Grant/P20 Complexity and Self-management Grant Monthly Seminar Series presents: "Evening routines in families of young children with diabetes: lessons learned and next steps" by Donna J. Marvicsin, Ph.D., PNP-BC, CDE, clinical associate professor, School of Nursing, University of Michigan.

Dr. Donna Marvicsin has been caring for children in pediatric endocrinology since 1995, and her overarching scholarship focus is on the parenting of school-age children with Type 1 diabetes. In her past research, Dr. Marvicsin has examined the relationships between maternal environment (e.g. child behavior and coping resources), diabetes self-efficacy, diabetes management behaviors, and child glycemic control. Her current research includes an examination of a parenting intervention designed to prevent childhood obesity in the pre-school population. Building off of and utilizing her expertise, Dr. Marvicsin is the program coordinator for the undergraduate pediatric courses and well as the program coordinator for the pediatric nurse practitioner program at U-M School of Nursing.
