I’m on my way to Boston for the meeting of Joslin 50-Year Medalists at Joslin Diabetes Center. Indications are there will be more than 100 of us (I’m one). So that means we will have well over 5,000 years of T1 experience in one large room. It’s only been 90 years since insulin was first used, and if it weren’t for that, all of us 100 would have been dead at least 50 years ago. While there, I’m also scheduled for exams with ophthalmologist Jennifer Sun, MD, and with endo and insulin pump specialist Howard Wolpert, MD, as well as two dinners and one special event that I won’t talk about until after they have happened. If you need more explanation, please contact me.
