Sansum Diabetes Research Institute's
75th Anniversary Gala
March 16, 2019
Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito
It’s time to celebrate! Dr. William Sansum was the first American physician to manufacture and administer life-saving insulin here in Santa Barbara and changed forever the way this disease is managed. In 2019, we will celebrate this incredible accomplishment and the 75th Anniversary of the founding of Sansum Diabetes Research Institute (SDRI).
SDRI’s focus is to improve the health and quality of life for men, women, and children both locally and globally who are impacted by diabetes. Today almost 30 million men, women and children are living with diabetes in the U.S. alone – with 1.7 million Americans being diagnosed annually. SDRI has made significant advances in research, education, care, pediatrics, and pregnancy since our founding in 1944.
