It was a remarkable Saturday evening in lower Manhattan a few weeks ago. Seated in an old Fire station just off Canal Street about 100 of us, including several diabetes’ luminaries – Psychologist Bill Polonsky, DRI’s Tom Karlya, AADE Educator of the Year Susan Weiner and Marjorie’s Fund founder Jason Baker – watched Paul Binder above renew his vows to his diabetes and his health.
