The 15th Annual Steve Winograd Memorial Diabetes Tennis Tournament will
be held at Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club Friday, August 12 through

Foundation Diabetes Fund.
"I'm looking forward to being a part of the event this year,”
said Hayley Miller, MD, who specializes in internal medicine, diabetes,
and metabolism at St. John’s. “The impact that the tournament
has on the Diabetes Fund is significant. We depend on the generosity of
our community to run many of the programs that St. John's offers for
people who are living with diabetes."
The closing banquet, open to the public, will be held at the Club on Sunday
at 6:00 pm to celebrate the tournament and promote awareness of diabetes
in our community. The evening includes a live and silent auction and guest
speaker, Dr. Hayley Miller. Dinner tickets are included for players and

The Steve Winograd Memorial Tennis Tournament, founded by Kolsky, has raised
over $300,000 for St. John's Diabetes Education program, a certified
program of the American Diabetes Association. These funds help send children
to diabetes summer camps, provide financial assistance to patients, and
support the purchase of medical equipment. The Diabetes Education program
reduces the number of hospital admissions and helps prevent complications
from diabetes, including heart disease, kidney disease, and blindness.
St. John's Diabetes Education staff also provide community education
to help lower the incidence of diabetes in Teton County.
