Celebrating the Past, Looking Toward the Future This Diabetes Awareness Month

(BPT) - November is Diabetes Awareness Month — a time for us to reflect not only on how far diagnosis and treatment have advanced since the discovery of insulin just 100 years ago, but also on where opportunities still lie to expand access to advanced technology.

As the leading global healthcare technology company, Medtronic boldly confronts the most challenging health problems facing humanity by engineering solutions that strengthen, lengthen and save lives. Diabetes management has evolved from a death sentence just 100 years ago, to glass syringes and backpack pumps, to the smart insulin pens and advanced integrated pump systems available today. Medtronic has pioneered many of these advancements and now more than ever remains committed to transforming diabetes care and serving as a true care partner for anyone managing their insulin delivery.
