In recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month in November, the Mount Sinai Diabetes Center hosted an educational event for patients, staff, and the community in the Guggenheim Atrium on how to prevent and control diabetes. It included “Viva Fitness” demonstrations and tastings by the Food and Nutrition Department.
The event was sponsored by the Center’s Stanley Mirsky, MD, Diabetes Education Unit, which provides free diabetes self-management classes. The late Dr. Mirsky was a pioneering diabetes researcher and a long-time clinician at The Mount Sinai Hospital dedicated to patient care and education. He also authored highly acclaimed books to help individuals better understand and live with diabetes.
