Summary, etc.:
In the late 1980s, pediatric endocrinologists at the Children's Hospital in Winnipeg began to notice a new cohort appearing in their clinics for young people with diabetes. Through dozens of interviews, Krotz shows the impact of the disease on the lives of individuals and families, especially in communities far removed from the medical personnel and facilities available in the city.
