BRIDGEWATER, NJ, November 2011 — The New Jersey Chapter of the American Diabetes Association honored four contributors in the effort to defeat diabetes.

The four included Robert Garrett, Executive Vice President and COO of Hackensack University Medical Center; Christy Bell, Senior Vice President, Healthcare Management, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey; Dennis Marco, Executive Vice President of Porzio, Bromberg & Newman; and Somerset County Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano.

The goal of the ADA event was to raise funds to help fight diabetes in African-American, Hispanic, Latino and other ethnic communities that are disproportionately affected by diabetes. Approximately 240 people attended.

Mr. Marco has been instrumental in assisting the New Jersey ADA with its annual Address to the Business Community event and providing support and guidance to the organization and its leadership. He is also a member of the national board of the Leukemia and Lymphona Society, an organization in which he has been active for more than 10 years.
