Columbia University Medical Center/NYPH receive $28 million donation toward curing diabetes
Date:3/19/2008

NEW YORK, March 19, 2008 The Russell Berrie Foundation has donated $28 million to Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, as part of a focused effort to provide comprehensive care to diabetes patients while working, through concentrated research initiatives, toward a cure, the Medical Center gratefully announced today.

The nations fifth leading killer, diabetes is a disease in which the bodys failure to regulate glucose, or blood sugar, can lead to fatal complications. It affects more than 20.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 7 percent of the population, according to the American Diabetes Association. Moreover, a recent study showed that caring for the type 2 epidemic exacts a heavy financial toll as well: $174 billion a year, nearly as much as the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and the global war on terrorism combined.

This generous gift continues the Berrie Foundations exceptional commitment to diabetes research and treatment. Spanning ten years, the Foundations total support exceeds $63 million.

The Berrie Foundation's $28 million gift will be divided between Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Columbia University Medical Centers Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center will receive $21 million to fund non-reimbursed clinical care, a new professorship, new pilot research, a continuation of the Berrie Program in Cellular Therapies including an effort to create diabetes-specific embryonic stem cells and the Centers endowment. The gift also will challenge the Berrie Center to raise an additional $25 million in support. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia will receive $7 million to establish a Diabetes Heart Center of Excellence at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia, focusing on the cardiovascular complications of diabetes.

We are enormously grateful for the Berrie Foundations commitment to Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyt
