Picture, Joslin Medalists

For the sixth day of the Blogger's Week participation, we are to show some picture that is special to us. The picture below shows a group of long term type 1 diabetics. They have all been type 1 for 50 years, or more. The Joslin diabetes Center in Boston awards medals to these diabetics. The older people in the picture are the medalists, the younger ones are doctors and staff members at the center. I am the taller fellow in the middle of the back row. The Joslin Medalist Study is examining medalists to see what makes us different. I participated in the study in 2009. The doctor presiding over the meeting said that he had never seen such a healthy looking group of "sick people" Lol!


  1. Rock on! How inspiring and awesome.

  2. I remember seeing this before Richard. I am really glad that you were able to attend and share so much with us!

  3. The next meeting is in 2013. There are several new medalists whom I helped get their 50 year medals. They want to dine with us while we are in Boston. It will be great to meet them!
