Joslin Diabetes Center honors brothers living 70-plus years with type 1 diabetes

BOSTON -- Joslin Diabetes Center, the global leader in diabetes research, care and education, will recognize brothers Robert Cleveland and Gerald Cleveland with Joslin Medals for their living more than 70 years each with insulin-dependent diabetes. The award ceremony, set for tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. at The Nottingham Senior Living facility in Jamesville, NY, will honor Robert Cleveland, who has lived for more than 78 years with type 1 diabetes, and his brother Gerald Cleveland, who has lived for 72 years with the disease.

"Robert Cleveland and Gerald Cleveland have led remarkable lives despite the challenges that diabetes poses," said George L. King, M.D., director of research at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. "To put their accomplishments into perspective, the Cleveland brothers developed diabetes shortly after the discovery of insulin, and more than 70 years later neither has developed any serious complications. Both are to be commended for meticulously managing their blood glucose levels day in and day out for several decades. They serve as an inspiration for anyone living with type 1 diabetes."

Robert Cleveland is a retired accountant and has two children, Marilyn Welles and Neil Cleveland, with Ruth Cleveland, his wife of more than 57 years. Gerald Cleveland, Ed.D., received his doctorate from Syracuse University and trained as a teacher before becoming assistant superintendent of the Syracuse Public Schools for 27 years. He has two children, Linda Czarny and Roger Cleveland, with his late wife of 62 years, Mildred Cleveland.

Among those scheduled to speak at the ceremony honoring the Cleveland brothers is Ruth Weinstock, M.D., medical director of Joslin Diabetes Center at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse and Professor of Medicine and Chief, Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at SUNY Upstate Medical University. Also speaking will be Hillary Keenan, Ph.D., a member of a Joslin research team that
