Kurt Midyett, MD
Midwest Pediatric Specialists
Overland Park, Kansas
Dr. Midyett received his training in pediatric endocrinology at the University of Kansas and is board-certified in both adult and pediatric medicine. He has practiced medicine, taught, and conducted research in the field of endocrinology in Kansas City for 20+ years, including Children’s Mercy, University of Kansas School of Medicine, Saint Luke’s Health System, and Overland Park Regional Medical Center. Following his tenure at Children’s Mercy, he broadened his patient base to include pregnant women with endocrine disorders when joining Midwest Women’s & Children’s Specialty Group.
In 2020, Dr. Midyett transitioned his Specialty Group practice to a community-based pediatric subspecialty model, where currently there are none in Kansas City. His vision is to provide high level, specialized, pediatric sub-specialty care to the community, in particular Johnson County where the practice is based next to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.
Dr. Midyett’s vision is to provide personalized pediatric care that is unhindered by a large hospital organization. Patients will be seen quickly, by an experience board-certified expert, instead of being initially assessed by a medical student or resident before gaining access to the attending level doctor. That expert will be accessible throughout the patient’s medical journey for expedient modifications to the child’s changing needs.
As a pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Midyett treats anything related to hormones such as type one diabetes, growth disorders, thyroid disorders, complex adrenal disorders, precocious puberty, pituitary gland growths or tumors, and more. He continues to treat women who have endocrine disorders needing management during pregnancy, such as diabetes.
Eden Miller, DO
High Lakes Health Care
Dr. Eden Miller, an Osteopathic board certified Family Practitioner, received her medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1997. Returning to the Northwest, she completed her residency in family practice at Eastmoreland Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Upon completion, she joined High Lakes Heath Care in Bend, Oregon, where she shares a practice with husband Dr. Kevin Miller. Over the past 18 years, Dr. Miller has cultivated a special interest in diabetes, after contracting type-1 diabetes while in medical school. Out of that personal experience, her practice has extended into a subspecialty in diabetes care. An impassioned speaker, Dr. Miller has given over 800 lectures in the field of Diabetes to health care providers and patients alike, on subjects such as Diabetes Management, Insulin Pump Therapy, Clinical Research, and Healthcare Policy. Her adage for care is that she “only succeeds as a provider if she turns patients into experts on their own disease”.
Dr. Miller believes that a “physiologic patient individualized approach to diabetes intervention is crucial to success. She feels if our nation is to triumph over the ravages of diabetes, a collaborative effort; unhindered by fear of personal scrutiny, and barriers for effective treatment need to be removed”.
For her, Diabetes Nation provides the foundational model to impact the people that represent this disease, and begin the process of restoring hope back to their lives.
You will have access to this learning activity for a period of 90 days after you enroll, or whenever the activity expires (whichever comes first).
