The University of Chicago Medicine Kovler Diabetes Center will dedicate a new diabetes education library to honor the legacy of the late James C. Tyree, former chairman and CEO of Mesirow Financial Holdings, chairman of Sun-Times Media Group and a board member at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

The library will provide patients and their families with access to educational materials and provide dedicated space for classes and support groups. It is the latest component of the James C. Tyree Program for Diabetes Care and Innovation to promote clinical programs for diabetes, research collaboration, and education and outreach for patients and medical professionals.

Tyree, who suffered from diabetes for about 25 years, was an advocate of patient counseling and providing behavioral health and wellness services. He died in March 2011 at age 53 from complications of stomach cancer while being treated at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
