Gala delivers big bucks to fight Type I Diabetes

Michael Mayo, FACHE, hospital president of Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, was the honoree at the 16th annual JDRF Gala, One Night on Safari, at Sawgrass Marriott Oct. 15.

Event chair Katie Bush acknowledged Mayo as a visionary leader committed to a future with advancements in patient care and quality outcomes as well as his narrowed focus on finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Mayo is not the first Baptist executive to be honored by JDRF; in 2005, Baptist Health System President and CEO Hugh Greene was acknowledged.

The event, as for many others, was delayed a week thanks to Hurricane Matthew, but the aftermath of the Category 4 storm didn’t deter supporters from coming out for a worthy cause.
