Happy Birthday Frederick Banting!

TODAY, the world celebrates Sir Frederick Banting, who, with his partners, discovered insulin and its therapeutic potential. The discovery meant that Type 1 diabetes was no longer a death sentence and today millions of people are alive and thriving. We want to celebrate and hope you’ll join us. We need your help spreading the word on 11/14, but not before! It’s a surprise party!

Beyond Type 1 is hosting a digital birthday party on social media and at bantingsbirthday.org We’re inviting the world to sign his birthday card, choose a party favor, and learn more about this incredible man and his work. We have partners who have made gifts to the Type 1 community in honor of Banting as well, providing a variety of product for low-income families.

Sign the card and get your party favor!
