With the 2013 Kentucky Derby taking place on May 4, just look what happens when you have both diabetes and horse racing on the mind:
Did you know… ?
The Derby is the oldest continually held sporting event in the U.S., started in 1875 — just a year before Col. Eli Lilly founded his pharmaceutical company in Indianapolis that would eventually go on to make insulin! And also, featured cartoonist Meredith Pack who blogs at With a Side of Insulin lives in the same town of Louisville, KY, where the race happens. Thanks for the image, Meredith — and for the record, we’ll put our bets on WOOT any day of the week!
And by the way, Happy Cinco de Mayo today to everyone in the Diabetes Community!
