Camp Joslin Alumni

Well I remember Joslin sometimes I can't believe that it's been approx 60 years since I attended. I rember being a volunteer for study on a new med. They wanted to know if this would help control diabetes. This was a pill!!!. Needless to say it did not work on type 1. Camp was great. Is this still running. If it is I would love to volunteer I have had this "wonderful" disease for 60 years. The stories I could tell. I am proud to be a 50 year medalist and hope to make it to 75See More
