Mineola Lions Club Shows Continued Support for Winthrop’s Diabetes Education Center

mineola lions club Mineola Lions Club President Joe Bosnack with Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, BC-ADM, CDE, FAADE, Executive Director of Winthrop’s Diabetes and Obesity Institute.

Members of the Edward Smith Mineola Lions Club recently gathered in support of the Diabetes Education Center at Winthrop to present two charitable donations totaling $12,000. A final pledge payment for $10,000 was directed to Winthrop’s Pre-Diabetes Intervention Program – a unique program designed to promote lifestyle changes among those with pre-diabetes and stem the rise in type 2 diabetes. With this donation, the Mineola Lions Club fulfills its $100,000 pledge made in 2007, which funded the creation of the Pre-Diabetes Program at Winthrop.

In addition, a separate $2,000 donation will support the Center’s Kids Interested in Diabetes (KIDS) Program – an interactive educational program designed to teach children ages seven to 12 about diabetes through games and activities.

“We are deeply appreciative of the Mineola Lions’ support of Winthrop’s comprehensive diabetes prevention and support programs,” said Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, BC-ADM, CDE, FAADE, Executive Director of Winthrop’s Diabetes and Obesity Institute. “The Lions Club’s commitment to combating diabetes and its effects has been instrumental to our success in offering diabetes prevention services to the community.”
