She has also produced significant studies and presentations on diabetes and obesity in children of different ethnicities, the correlation between Vitamin D levels and obesity in pediatric patients, and more.   

A graduate of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Dr. Cazeau began her medical training at the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and completed her pediatric internship and residency at Ronald McDonald Children’s Hospital/Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill. She next pursued advanced training in pediatric endocrinology via a prestigious fellowship at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, where she was selected as Fellow Captain for Endocrinology within the hospital’s graduate medical education (GME) program.

Dr. Cazeau is dedicated to working with children, their parents and primary care physicians to ensure the most accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment and effective management of a wide variety of disorders pertaining to the endocrine system. Her warm bedside manner and excellent communication skills help kids feel comfortable and positively engaged in their own healthcare.
