Joslin Diabetes Center 50-Year Medalist Program

Aug 21, 2010

Since 1970, Joslin Diabetes Center has awarded a 50-year bronze medal and certificate to recognize the remarkable achievement of a successful life with insulin-dependent diabetes for half a century or more. To date there have been approximately 2,663 50-Year Medals awarded by Joslin Diabetes Center.  Joslin Diabetes Center has awarded medals to recipients throughout the world, including individuals from Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, South America, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. 

We have also awarded 26 distinctive 75-Year medals. Recipients of this special honor include a man from MA in 1996; a man from RI in 1999; a FL woman in 2001; a CT woman and a WA man - both in 2002; a PA woman, GA man, WI woman, VA man, IN woman and NY man in 2003; a New Zealand woman also in 2003; men from OH, MA, NY and PA in 2004; and a woman from MD in 2005; men from MA, NY and woman from WA in 2006.

There are no physical qualifications for these awards.  However, good documentation of the date of diagnosis of diabetes and particularly the date of beginning of insulin treatment is helpful.
