Donations pour in for reservation Diabetes Center


he much-dreamed-about Diabetes Center for Excellence is one large step closer to becoming a reality for residents of the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation. The Akwesasne Housing Authority is donating more than $1 million to the Let's Get Healthy program, a division of the tribe's Health Services Department that works with diabetes patients on the reservation. The donations come in part from the Housing Authority's 25th anniversary celebration, which also was a fundraiser for the proposed Diabetes Center.
