JDRF 100 Years of Insulin

Celebrating World Diabetes Day 2020

Thursday 12 November 2020, 7.00 – 8.00pm
Free event
Join us via Facebook Live or YouTube

Join us for an unique celebration, that will mark (a couple of days early!) the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting – co discoverer of insulin.

We want to use this event as an opportunity to say thank you to our wonderful supporters, who throughout the most turbulent of times, have stayed loyal to us, so that we can continue our vital work.

This time 100 years ago Banting and his lab partners would have been on the verge of the most monumental diabetes breakthrough in history (so far!). We will take a look back at how much we’ve progressed and also look forward to the research momentum building. What are the current exciting advances in the field? How far could we be away from our next breakthrough or cure?

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to come together as a community, hear inspirational stories from people affected by type 1 and hear from us – the staff members working behind the scenes at JDRF.
