Dance Out Diabetes' Executive Director invited to Helmsley Trust.
Because people with type 1 diabetes are welcome to attend our programs (and do), Theresa Garnero will be attending a strategic planning meeting in New York City at the Leona and Harry Helmsley Charitable Trust. Their type 1 diabetes program goal is to advance the understanding of type 1 diabetes by finding and funding promising new treatments and technologies.
They looked all over the spectrum at all sorts organizations within the diabetes community and found Dance Out Diabetes!
Stay tuned for more details. Dance Out Diabetes knows many stellar organizations are actively searching for a cure. We help people now to find joy and connection through dance and support.
In fact, our Aetna Foundation sponsored program is well underway. Read our press release here.
Those in the SF area, watch the SF Examiner on 3/8. We are slated to have a little write up on Thursday.
Diabetes not required.
People who attend our program are dancing for the health of it. They may have diabetes or be supporting someone with it. They may be trying to prevent diabetes due to a family history. Mainly, we are a group of non-dancers in a supportive environment having fun, moving to the music, and enjoying the experience.
"I'm so glad I came. I haven't had this much fun in a long time."
