The Dr. Thomas N. Pesola Memorial Scholarship fund was established after Tom's death in 2009. A lifelong diabetic who came from humble beginnings, Dr. Pesola relied on scholarship money for the economically and medically unfortunate. In that vein, the fund has awarded scholarship money to diabetic Massachusetts residents who pursued higher education or attended camps to learn how to manage their diabetes. In 2014, the fund moved to exclusively support camp scholarships in partnership with The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, Inc.
Thank you for your interest in our efforts to honor Tom and benefit the diabetic community.
