Tom and Margaret Larkin

Tom and Margaret Larkin first became involved with Hoag in 2005. Now generous benefactors, they’re soaring with enthusiasm for the important programs being developed there - including diabetes. “When we moved down here I began talking with (trustee) Ginny Ueberroth about becoming involved,” said Margaret, a Hoag Hospital Foundation board member. “That’s how it all started.” Tom, a longtime investment manager, suffers with adult-onset diabetes, and the couple view the diabetes program as one that significantly helps all who are affected.

What impresses Tom about the program is Kris V. Iyer, M.D., executive medical director for the Allen Diabetes Center. Tom has great faith in Dr. Iyer, and the two share a common health issue: diabetes. With diabetes, comprehensive care includes several components: identifying people who are at risk, educating them about staying healthy, and care. “The focus of the Allen Diabetes Center is on education and care,” Margaret said. “The fact that they won’t turn anyone away regardless of ability to pay means a lot to us.”
