“The Story of Insulin” will air on CNBC on Sunday, January 10 at 7 pm EST.

(From the press release:) “This is truly one of the most extraordinary stories of modern medicine” explained CEO Howard Steinberg. “Never before had a new treatment had such an immediate, life-saving impact on such a huge population of people – mostly children. Before insulin, a child with diabetes had only one treatment available – a starvation diet that might prolong their life by a few months.” Steinberg, who has lived with type 1 diabetes since age 10, estimates that he has taken over 75,000 injections of insulin in his lifetime.

The program is presented by dLife and Novo Nordisk.
