Funds raised at the Gala will support The Diabetes Health and Wellness Academy of N.Y.C. in its efforts to assist families, caregivers, and guardians in the daily management of prevention and awareness as well those affected with chronic disease.

The Diabetes Health and Wellness Academy of N.Y.C. intends to launch an innovative learning environment that alleviates gaps in disease management and healthy living while delivering effective daily education.

“As the parent of a child with diabetes, one of my greatest daily worries is whether she’ll survive outside of my direct care,” said Sabrina Gardner, founder of The Diabetes Health and Wellness Academy of N.Y.C. We need a continuum of innovative health and educational services blended with support systems where students spend the vast majority of their day.
