The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre promotes positive integration of diabetes management into the daily life of children, adolescents and young adults and their families. The provision of comprehensive education and life skill instruction is facilitated through individual sessions at the Centre and in the home. Crisis prevention through ongoing contact (through 24-hour pager, as needed) is provided for specific management issues.
Our Centre is a registered charity and we raise the majority of our revenue through various funding activities. We also receive financial support through Durham businesses, Service clubs and Corporate partner.
Regardless of the party theme, location or size, ECHOage adds a meaningful component of charity giving - not just receiving - to traditional birthday celebrations, giving children a practical, hands-on way to make a difference at the time of their birthdays. With 'One Gift, One Cause' as the company's mantra, the site pools gifts of money from guests so that a portion goes to a single charitable cause of the birthday child's choice - making it easier than ever for parents and children to give and receive.
It's easy to ECHOage any birthday party, no matter where or when it will be held. Parents and children planning a party begin by choosing from a variety of creative and fun online invitations through echoage.com (be sure to select The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre as the charity of choice!)
