The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation recognizes and appreciates the significant efforts of the Northwell Health Dolan Family Health Center, Greenlawn, NY, which provides comprehensive medical care for thousands of men, women and children each year. For more than 25 years, the Dolan Family Health Center has been at the intersection of innovation, excellence and community commitment.
The Dolan Center endeavors to provide comprehensive diabetes care as part of their goal to protect, promote, and maintain the health and general well-being of all of their patients. One of the many complications individuals experience from this chronic disease is diabetic retinopathy, a condition that can cause vision loss and blindness. The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation’s support enabled the Dolan Family Health Center to purchase a Topcon tabletop retinal camera to serve their patients who suffer with diabetes.
“Upon learning that historically the Dolan Center has seen poor compliance with completion of ophthalmology referrals, leaving diabetic patients at risk for eye disease, The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation proudly provided a grant to make it possible for Dolan Center patients to have access to the diabetic retinal screening process,” said Foundation President Peter J. Klein. “It’s important to us to work with Northwell Health Huntington Hospital and the Dolan Center to stay at the forefront of technology and innovation when it comes to patient care.”
