[World Report] Profile: Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston, MA, USA

The Joslin Diabetes Center has a long history of being on the cutting edge of diabetes care and research. It was founded 117 years ago by Elliott Joslin, a physician dedicated to understanding and treating type 1 diabetes in young people. He used the latest methods to treat the disease—which at that time mainly meant enforcing a starvation diet—but was quick to adopt new techniques, said John Brooks, the centre’s current president.
