FLORIDA (TIP): Dr. V. Mohan, diabetologist and founder of the Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes
 Specialties Center, Chennai, has been bestowed with the Harold Rifkin 
Distinguished International Service in the Cause of Diabetes Award. This
 makes him the first Indian physician to receive the highest accolade 
conferred by American Diabetic Association (ADA).

A noted diabetologist, Mohan has been 
working in the field of diabetes in Chennai for over three decades. He 
is the Chairman and Chief of Diabetology at Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes 
Specialities Centre which is a WHO Collaborating Centre for 
Noncommunicable Diseases Prevention and Control and an IDF Centre of 
Education. He is also President and Director of the Madras Diabetes 
Research Foundation.

Presented in memory of Harold Rifkin, 
the award is meant to honor individuals who have provided outstanding 
service in the cause of diabetes. The awardees are usually doctors who 
have made an impact in the field of diabetes with an international 
perspective. The award also recognizes individuals whose efforts have 
increased the awareness of the burden of diabetes worldwide.

Mohan will receive the award during the 
National Scientific Achievement Awards Presentation Ceremony on the 
sidelines of the 78th Scientific Sessions of the ADA at Orlando, 

Recipient of more than 160 awards, Mohan
 started working on diabetes as an undergraduate medical student when he
 joined his father Prof. M. Viswanathan a pioneer in diabetes in India. Together, they founded the first private diabetes center in India in 1971. He continued to work at this center till 1991.

Mohan and his wife, Dr. Rema Mohan, 
subsequently established their own diabetes centers under the name ‘Dr. 
Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.’ Currently, he oversees 20 
diabetes centers and clinics in India and one international diabetes 
center in Oman. More than 350,000 diabetic patients have been registered
 at these centers.


In 2012, Govt. of India awarded Mohan 
with Padma Shri – the highest civilian award – for his accomplishments 
in the field of diabetology. He is also the winner of Dr. BC Roy Award 
from the Medical Council of India and the Basanti Devi Amir Chand Prize 
from the Indian Council of Medical Research.
