Sir Frederick Banting may have passed away in 1941, but he’s still saving millions of lives today. Before Banting and his partners discovered insulin for therapeutic use, Type 1 diabetes was a death sentence. November 14th—Banting’s actual birthday — was selected as World Diabetes Day because his discovery changed the world. Join Beyond Type 1 in celebrating the man, the myth, the legend. Happy 127th birthday Sir Frederick Banting! The world thanks you!
