What is it about?
This is a tribute to two great men who helped to move the field of Diabetes forward. Our staff has assisted thousands of authors, editors, and reviewers and have become friends with more of them than we could begin to count. Sadly, we lost two especially dear friends, Richard R. Rubin, PhD, CDE, and Harry Keen, MD. Richard lost his battle with cancer on March 25, 2013; Harry died unexpectedly on April 5, 2013 while undergoing treatment for lymphoma.

These two men were tireless in their fight to stop diabetes, always putting others’ needs before their own. Their lives were about giving.
