Grateful Patient Program

Are you one of Joslin Diabetes Center’s Grateful Patients?  Quality care and compassion go hand in hand.  Our patients and families often express their gratitude for this excellent care in a variety of ways – through kind words, smiles, letters of thanks, volunteer efforts and financial support.

For more than 100 years, Joslin has been the champion for those with diabetes, their families and healthcare providers and has set the standard for diabetes care.  But Joslin provides more than care; it provides patients hope and support for a long and healthy life.

For our patients, friends and families who would like an opportunity to say thank you to the people who were there when they were needed the most —the members of the JoslinCare team who have made a memorable contribution to their health and well-being—Joslin created the Patient & Family Benefactors Program.

This program provides a meaningful way to recognize and commemorate the excellent care you or your loved one received from your team of caregivers at Joslin Diabetes Center. It is an opportunity for you to give something back and at the same time allows us to fund the world-class diabetes care, informational resources, and cutting-edge research necessary to improve the quality of life for those living with diabetes and to speed progress toward a cure.

Gifts may be directed to the areas of greatest need or may be designated to clinic, research or education programs. If you would like to honor a specific caregiver, we will send a card to that person recognizing your thoughtfulness.

The decision as to where to direct funds is up to the donor, making this program unique and valuable to grateful patients and their families.

Give a gift that feels good and know that you will have made a difference. All gifts are tax-deductible.
