Joslin Under the Stars Benefit Event

If you follow my blog and website, you know I am honored to have a special relationship with the world renowned Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA. Joslin is the best medical facility in the world for treating people with diabetes, and even better, the leading research facility to find a cure.

My wife, Anna, and I, and even our 1 1/2 year old baby daughter Janna, attended the Joslin Under the Stars event in Boston, September 24 -26. Anna could not attend the first day, so baby Janna and I flew to Boston alone and spent the whole day and evening together- 3 airports, 2 airplanes, a cocktail party, and then the Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park. That was a quite a day with a 1 1/2 year old!

At the pregrame reception, the Boston Globe wanted a photo of me with Sex and the City star Willie Garson, but Janna was not letting go of Daddy so she got her first photo in the newspaper.

The third day Joslin and Walgreen's Pharmacy hosted a fantastic round table discussion for medical staff, researchers and representatives from companies supplying the diabetes community to share ideas, best practices, research and ways to combat diabetes and support those with diabetes. It was a great event!
