This morning, the Joslin Clinic shared a photo of Dr. C Kenneth Gorman, who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for living 80 years with type 1 diabetes.  He’s one of five people to have received the medal, and the first Canadian (eh?).

Here is this wonderful man, medal and all:

Dr. Gorman redefines what it means to “earn” a medal, in my eyes.  Thank you, Joslin, for letting us know about Dr. Gorman and to Dr. Gorman for inspiring me to keep working towards my 80 year medal.
