Banting, Bliss, & Beyond Symposium

Toronto Medical Historical Club

I helped to organize a symposium held at the University of Toronto May 3-4, 2022 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin in 1921-22. We welcomed a wonderful list of speakers from many countries and had many fruitful discussions.

I presented a paper entitled “Where Credit is Due: Collip’s contribution,” on May 3 as well as the closing summary on May 4.

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.
