Real People And Events Folks Want To See Get A Biopic

And here’s a bonus book recommendation, if you, like me, want to know more: 

“The book Breakthrough: Elizabeth Hughes, the Discovery of Insulin, and the Making of a Medical Miracle by Thea Cooper and Arthur Ainsberg is really good. It covers the different doctors who worked with diabetic patients, the researchers who helped discover and formulate insulin, the pharmaceutical companies who made the insulin, and focuses a lot on Elizabeth Hughes. She developed diabetes as a young girl in a time where it was a death sentence, and the book covers her parents’ struggle with it, her attending doctor who was at the time an expert in diabetes, and how insulin saved her life.”
