Celebrating a 23-Year Partnership

Members of The Edward R. Smith Mineola Lions Club recently gathered in NYU Winthrop’s new Research and Academic Center to celebrate the Club’s 23-year partnership in support of various diabetes programs at NYU Winthrop. Members of the Mineola Lions Club heard from Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, BC-ADM, CDE, FAADE, Executive Director of NYU Winthrop’s Diabetes and Obesity Institute, who discussed how their generous support of over $160,000 has had a tremen- dous impact on NYU Winthrop’s Pre-Diabetes Intervention program and the Kids Interested in Diabetes (KIDS) Program, among other initiatives. What’s more, because of the Lions’ generosity, Ms. Dittko expressed how the Hospital has been able to establish partnerships with renowned institutions to offer continuing education courses to endocrinology fellows so they are best equipped to treat individuals with diabetes.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with the Mineola Lions since our partner- ship began in 1992, and I cannot express enough how deeply appreciative we are of their long-term commitment to our comprehensive diabetes prevention and support programs,” said Ms.Dittko. “The Lions Club’s dedication to combating diabetes and its effects has been instrumental to our success in offering diabetes prevention services to so many individuals in the community.”
