Making a Difference

Our “100 Reasons Why”

This year we celebrate an extraordinary milestone in the history of medicine: the 100-year anniversary of the discovery on insulin. In honor of this anniversary, Sanofi is highlighting “100 Reasons Why” we are grateful for this life-saving medication with a storybook featuring 100 stories from people living with diabetes, caregivers, and people affected by diabetes.

Chapters will be published throughout the year, with each exploring a different way that insulin has allowed people to not just live with diabetes but thrive.
