Marc has first-hand knowledge of how the treatment and management of a chronic disease affects a family. Marc is the Chairman of the Atlanta Wine Gala Event in Remembrance of David Binko, an event that has been held annually for the last 15 years in support of the American Heart Association. David, Marc’s nephew, had a chronic heart condition from birth. After three difficult years, David lost his battle with his heart condition. In addition, Marc lost his father to a chronic heart condition that same year. It was these events that exposed Marc to the management of chronic diseases and were the impetus for Marc to enter the healthcare field in a meaningful way.
