William Rounds, 85 Years With Type 1

William Rounds was born in 1923, and diagnosed later that year, when
he was 11 months old. He was a Joslin medalist and attended the
medalist meeting in 2009. I did not attend that year, but I did attend
in 2011. He was type 1 for 85 years in 2009. The link below gives an
article about him. On the link page you will find the stories of 11
long term type 1 diabetics. The ADA magazine, the Diabetes Forecast,
celebrated their 60'th anniversary in Oct, 2008. The magazine wanted
to publish stories about people who had lived 60 years with type 1. If
you scroll down the page you will find my story in the left hand
column. William Rounds was on the cover of that issue.
