To close out the summer, the pediatric diabetes program recently held their 9th annual patient picnic!

More than 160 attendees enjoyed lunch, face painting, games, swimming, prizes and even an ice cream truck!

It was a wonderful opportunity for patients and families to get to know one another, connect, and see their providers and staff outside of the clinical setting. Many attendees won gift cards this year for different activities.

One highlight of the picnic was the “carb jar” — a jar filled with goodies at the check-in table. Each year, patients and families are asked to guess how many carbohydrates are in the jar and the person who gets closest receives a prize!

The program is looking forward to hosting its 10th annual picnic next year!
