Diabetes foundation adopts greeting card

A recognition program created for the local chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has been adopted by the foundation's national office in New York.

The program, conceived by foundation staffer Jennifer Trokhan, was executed by Eric Weltner and Brian Burke of Burke/Weltner Advertising. When an official from the national office visited Cincinnati, she liked the cards so much she ordered them to be customized for use by the national office and all local foundation chapters.

Burke/Weltner, at 632 Vine St., downtown, Suite 805, works with numerous regional and national clients in addition to the foundation.
