Quotes

"My children and grandchildren have told me they notice the colour has returned to my face," says a jovial Poulias. "I already feel a significant improvement in my quality of life."
"Physicians were more likely to register than the general public. Similar to factors associated with registration in nonphysicians, younger physicians and women were more likely to register" Li and coauthors conclude
Long time resident Bruce Woodley told the Lakeshore Advance, "It was my great pleasure to have known Tom Lawson . He was a wonderful energetic man willing to get involved in any good cause. I worked for the family in Grand Bend and got to know him very well. He asked me to chair his campaign for mayor of Grand Bend. As well as being very capable of giving direction he also took direction with grace. I helped him with the air shows that he was so thrilled to put together for the Grand Bend beach. I have great memories of Rotary meetings that we attended together. Tom was a fine man in every respect - both business and personal - and I will enjoy my memories of the time that I got to spend with him. London and Grand Bend have lost a great friend.”"
"It's a simple solution to a major problem for individuals wearing an insulin pump," Hramiak said. "We have tested the system in adults and now are testing it in a group of 20 children ages 3-15. This system could potentially prevent overnight hypoglycemia and is a first step to developing a system that functions like a native pancreas."
