Because of Cecelia

The Story of a Remarkable Diabetes Educator

Who is Cecelia?

The Inspiration Behind Cecelia Health

At age 36, David Weingard was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It was a turning point in his life, and while David felt overwhelmed and frustrated, he was fortunate to meet Cecelia.

Cecelia, a Diabetes Educator Clinician (CDE) who worked at the Lighthouse Guild in NYC, transformed David’s life. Through personalized education, support, and compassion, Cecelia gave David hope that he could live an empowered life with diabetes.

Cecelia showed David that having diabetes was not a death sentence. He could manage his chronic condition as long as he had the right knowledge and understanding of the disease and made healthy choices. Because of Cecelia, David knew he was not alone.

Through personalized education, support, and compassion, Cecelia gave David hope that he could live an empowered life with diabetes.

David’s life-changing experience with Cecelia inspired him to establish a company that has helped hundreds of thousands of people living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Today, Cecelia Health’s Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) and clinical coaches work with proprietary technology to deliver personalized education and support for those who are struggling to manage their disease.

Sadly, Cecelia passed away a number of years ago, but after the impact she made on David’s life, her compassionate legacy lives on. Formerly Fit4D, David renamed his company Cecelia Health in her memory. Her name continues to showcase a passion for patient care and transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

We sat down with Kenneth Mohammed who is the son of Cecelia, the CDE who transformed the life of Cecelia Health Founder, CEO and person living with type 1 diabetes, David Weingard. Through Kenneth’s stories, we had the pleasure of learning about the kind and compassionate woman his mother was.

Cecelia Health

Our mission is to scale this personalized approach using a blend of clinical coaching and technology to transform the lives of people living with diabetes and other chronic conditions. Our company name Cecelia Health (formerly Fit4D) honors Cecelia and all the health educators who improve lives every day.
