Heritage Minute on the discovery of insulin

Historica Canada has released its newest Heritage Minute on the discovery of insulin. I was pleased to serve as one of the historical consultants on this segment, along with Chris Rutty and Grant Maltman. I appreciated the great effort made to accurately portray this complex story and to convey its essence in just 60 seconds of screen time. Congratulations to the whole team who brought this to life.
