Hopefully, someone from Joslin will reply and give you the requested information.  I just want to say that you have my profound respect to have achieved such a milestone.  Given that personal glucose monitors weren't available for much of that 50 years,   I think that many of us would like to hear your thoughts about what enabled you to achieve such a milestone, when the only way of monitoring your diabetes was from urine analysis.

No thing is able to make you feel so good as high academic results! Students work hard to gain that! Nevertheless, some fail their grades just because of bad academic writing technique. Nothing like that can happen if you buy essays at the essay writing service. Trust experts if you want to have got a real academic standards.

Leah Whalen has moved on, and she has been replaced by Sara Turek, so Sara is now the person at Joslin to be contacted about 25-, 50-, and 75-year awards.

I would be interested in learning also, on behalf of my father, who (knock on wood) will have 75 years on insulin next September.  I believe that Eli Lilly also has a program.  Keep me in the loop!  Good for you - congratulations!

Congratulations to your father on his nearly 75 years of insulin dependent diabetes!  To apply for the 50 or 75 year medal, we ask that you complete an application form (which can be found on this website, or I can email/mail you a copy).  We also ask for some form of documentation of the duration of diabetes.  Ideally, this documentation is in the form of medical records.  However, we understand that original medical records can be very difficult to obtain.  In the place of records, we also accept 2 to 3 letters of reference from family, long-time friends, current physician, etc. attesting to the duration of diabetes.

If you have any questions at all about the Medalist program, please feel free to call or email

Best,

Sara Turek
