Joslin Medals Honor Longtime Type 1 Survivors

Dealing with type 1 diabetes for decades—and staying healthy despite it—is no small feat. To celebrate those who have successfully managed diabetes for 50 or more years, the Joslin Diabetes Center, a research center and clinic in Boston, created the 50-Year Medal Program. See some of the recipients at Joslin’s fifth-ever awards ceremony in the summer of 2013.
