The academy is incorporated by the University Board of Regents the State of New York, and The New York State Education Department.
The benefit raises funds to support the organization’s development process, and its mission to assist children, their families, and caregivers who struggle with chronic disease each day, while, creating a unique learning environment through health & education learning initiatives.
The founder of the Diabetes Health and Wellness Academy of N.Y.C. has seen the struggles of her own child affected with type 1 juvenile diabetes daily and the entire family as a unit. Our innovative approach to a unique learning environment seeks to alleviate the ups and downs chronic disease can bring on a daily basis through the continuous efforts of health initiatives blended with education, where students spend the vast majority of their day.
Our programs will assist students on how to become guardians of their themselves and help them to experience optimal health, while supporting the families and caregivers who help them to remain healthy every day.
Please support our efforts, to help save lives.
