MEMBER OF WINTHROP’S DIABETES EDUCATION CENTER SUPPORT GROUP WINS SIGNED JETS JERSEY



Thanks to a generous donation from the New York Jets, Andrew Becker, a Massapequa resident and member of Winthrop-University Hospital’s KIDS (Kids Interested In Diabetes) Program, recently became the lucky owner of a signed David Harris jersey. Andrew won the jersey as part of a special raffle held at the Diabetes Education Center’s holiday party.

As a member of the KIDs Program, Andrew participates in a unique education and support group for children with type 1 diabetes offered by Winthrop’s nationally recognized Diabetes Education Center. Andrew and his family also participate in the Diabetes Education Center’s Kindred Spirits support group, which brings together families of children living with type 1 diabetes.

Pictured with Andrew at the conclusion of the raffle are Eileen Egan, FNP-C, CDE, Coordinator of Winthrop’s Kindred Spirits Support Group for families of children with diabetes (left), and Jean Corrigan, RN, CDE, Director of Winthrop’s Pediatric Diabetes Program (right).
