erian Hospital. Their support is vital to the future of diabetes care and research both here in New York City and across the nation and the world, said Lee Goldman, M.D., executive vice president for health and biomedical sciences, dean of the faculties of health sciences and medicine at Columbia University. The generosity of the Berrie family will bring advances in clinical care to patients suffering from this disease in a targeted and timely way. This crucial support will enable the Berrie Center to continue to treat more than 12,000 patients per year with comprehensive, multidisciplinary care, while contributing to the body of knowledge about this disease through focused clinical and basic science research efforts all in the same state-of-the-art space that encourages collaboration between clinicians and scientists focused on the same goal curing diabetes.

I take particular pleasure in the progress that the Berrie Center has made over the years, having had the good fortune of working with Russ and Angelica Berrie and their board in the early discussions that led to its establishment, said Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. It is indeed exciting to see this further evolution of diabetes care at the Berrie Center and NewYork-Presbyterian, including our new focus on the link between diabetes and heart disease. Diabetes, unfortunately, can lead to the development of heart disease. Our Diabetes Heart Center will address that link, advancing innovative treatments to enhance the lives of patients and their families, and making a significant impact on a major public health problem.

The Berrie Foundations interest in diabetes is personal. The late Russell Berrie, founder of Russ Berrie and Company, one of the worlds leading suppliers of toys and gifts, helped found the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center of Columbia University Medical Center ten years ago. It is named after Mr. Berries mother, who, like Mr. Berrie, had diabetes. F
