If your child is being treated at Columbia University Medical Center’s Naomie Berrie Diabetes Center, he or she is invited to the 14th annual day after Halloween candy trade-in party.
Halloween can be challenging for kids with diabetes. To help them enjoy the holiday while keeping their diabetes under control, the health-care professionals at the Berrie Center show their patients how to count carbohydrates in candy and adjust their insulin dosing accordingly. On the day after Halloween, from 4 PM to 6 PM, the children are invited to dress in their costumes and visit the Russ Berrie Medical Science Pavilion, 1152 St. Nicholas Avenue, where they can trade in their excess candy for a toy of their choice. There will also be face painting, games, and a performance by a magician.

Have a happy Halloween!
