  • Members of the Edward Smith Mineola Lions Club recently gathered in support of the Diabetes Education Center at Winthrop-University Hospital where they presented two charitable donations totaling $12,000. A pledge payment in the amount of $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; 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.


    The Edward Smith Mineola Lions Club is an ardent supporter of efforts that help prevent and treat diabetes and its devastating side effects such as blindness. Over the years, the Mineola Lions Club has been committed in its support of the Diabetes Education Center through numerous donations including a $100,000 pledge in 2007 which funded the creation of the innovative Pre-Diabetes Program at Winthrop. Celebrating its 30th year of service to the community, the Diabetes Education Center at Winthrop recently received its fourth consecutive reaccreditation from the American Diabetes Association. For more information on the Diabetes Education Center and its comprehensive programs, please call (516) 663-2350.
