LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kosair Children's Hospital is getting a $1 million donation to help young people with diabetes excel in sports.

The unique, diabetes sports medicine program will be part of the Wendy Novak Diabetes Care Center. That center is a collaboration between Kosair, the University of Louisville, and U of L physicians.

The new program will help monitor and educate children with Type One diabetes, both on and off the playing field.

About 150 children in our area are diagnosed with diabetes each year.
