Youth diabetes network receives funding

Thursday, August 16, 2007

The Youth Diabetes Network at Southeast Missouri Hospital received a donation of $12,486.97 at the hospital's 11th annual Camp DAY (Diabetes and Youth) Break Aug. 9 and 10 at HealthPoint Jackson. The donation came from the Cape Girardeau Kohl's store as part of its Kohl's Cares for Kids program. The money will help Southeast provide services for children with diabetes and their families, such as Camp DAY Break, telephone lifestyle counseling, a pediatric endocrinology clinic -- in cooperation with SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis -- and education programs on living with diabetes for children, parents, grandparents, caregivers and educators. Since 2005, Kohl's has donated more than $27,202 to Southeast.
