A "Bite of Hope" for Children with Diabetes

NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Pediatric Diabetes Program hosted its Ninth Annual Bite of Hope Dinner at the Inn at New Hyde Park in November, honoring the Marro family of Carle Place and Youth Achievement Award recipient Daniel Panaro of Hauppage for their tireless efforts to raise funds for the cure. Over the years, Bite of Hope has raised more than $386,000 to benefit the Pediatric Diabetes Program and its multifaceted approach to treating young people with diabetes.

Recognized as one of the leading diabetes and endocrinology programs in the nation, NYU Winthrop’s Pediatric Diabetes Program was established in 2002 and continues to be at the forefront of groundbreaking treatment, education and care for children, adolescents and young adults with diabetes throughout the tri-state region. Proceeds from the Bite of Hope event are directly used for the psychosocial services provided by NYU Winthrop’s Pediatric Diabetes Program. Since these services are offered free to patients and are not reimbursed by insurance, the Program relies on philanthropic contributions to thrive.
