You will have the opportunity to hear from key Joslin Medalist researchers and clinicians who are all working to prevent, treat and cure diabetes.

Honoring the memory of Thomas J. Beatson


Tom Beatson


Thomas J. Beatson, Jr. led a busy and fulfilling life while managing his type 1 diabetes. Diagnosed as a child in 1942, Tom became a strong advocate for research into type 1 diabetes. When Tom learned of the Medalist Study at Joslin he volunteered to participate and received his 50 year medal in 1996. After becoming one of Joslin's most generous philanthropists, Tom passed away in 2016 after living 74 years with type 1 diabetes. We will honor Tom during our Medalist gathering and remember his kindness, loyalty, and great smile.
