A Bite of Hope for Pediatric Diabetes Patients

NYU Winthrop Hospital ’s Pediatric Diabetes Program hosted its Fifth Annual Bite of Hope Dinner at the Inn at New Hyde Park on November 20, 2014, honoring the special achievements of Jeffrey and Carol Rosenking of Westbury, and raising $52,000 to benefit the Program and its multifaceted approach to treating young patients with diabetes.

Recognized as one of the leading Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology programs in the nation by US News & World Report, the Program ranks at the forefront of groundbreaking treatment, education and care for children, adolescents and young adults with diabetes throughout the tri- state region. The proceeds from the Bite of Hope event are used for the psychosocial services provided by NYU Winthrop’s Pediatric Diabetes Program.

The evening was emceed by CBS News’ Sophia Hall with enter- tainment provided by Maximilian Sisalli.
