    A recent grant from Astoria Federal Savings will help Winthrop-University Hospital's nationally renowned Diabetes Education Center continue on the cutting edge of diabetes education by employing innovative techniques to meet the educational needs of patients in the Internet generation. Thanks to Astoria Federal's $5,000 gift, the Diabetes Education Center will create a non-traditional learning environment, equipped with two computer workstations and interactive resources, designed to enhance the educational experiences of computer-savvy patients. The gift brings Astoria Federal Savings' support of diabetes education at Winthrop to a total of $15,000.
