Purpose: This year marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin which saved the lives of millions of people with diabetes and made diabetes a chronic illness rather than a death sentence. Since that time the management of diabetes has changed significantly with improvements in the delivery of insulin and monitoring of glucose as well as advancements in the realm of pancreatic transplant. This program will review the exciting story of the discovery of insulin and how diabetes management has changed since that time as well as what we have to look forward to in the future.
Target audience: Endocrinologists, Transplant Surgeons, Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Advanced Practice Providers, Residents, Fellows, and Medical Students
