Joslin Medalist Meeting, May 11, 2013

The 2013 Joslin Medalist meeting was held on May 11. There were more than 150 medalists present at the meeting. Every medalist has been type 1 for 50 years, or more. I was not able to attend because my wife was ill. She is well now. The link below connects to a video on Youtube. Medalists speaking at the meeting are shown. One medalist received the first ever 80 year medal. See him at the beginning of the video.

  1. I thought it was amazing about the gentleman that has had T1D for EIGHTY years!!! I'd love to know if he is on MDI or pump - since I have met some other T1D's over the years - who don't pump - and they are in great shape with no complications and entering into their 70th year. If only they'd apply for the Joslin Medal - but most nonAmericans don't know about this - and for myself - the hospital I dealt with back in the 60's is no longer around - therefore - no records. I just know deep inside myself - how long I've had it - few more years - and it's FIFTY (tho' I still feel only 30 ). Glad to hear your wife is alright!
