The Human Trial

November 14, 2019

100 years after the discovery of insulin, people with diabetes are rationing this life-saving drug because they can’t afford it. Insulin has tripled in price in the past 10 years in the US. My friends are making a film called The Human Trial, that shows what a small biotech company can do to disrupt the diabetes industry. After 5 years in production, the film is almost done with an anticipated premiere in Fall 2020.

I’ve always believed in supporting grassroots movements. Good ideas should rise to the top regardless of whether they are supported by deep-pockets or those with more ingenuity than resources. Shedding light on ingenuity in the race to find a cure for diabetes is the goal of the documentary “The Human Trial.” The film follows the patients and scientists of a clinical trial that looks like it might find the cure for diabetes. Diabetes hits home for me because I’m a type 1 diabetic.

To contribute to the making of this film, I designed the movie poster which is also now a T-shirt to raise funds for the cause. You can participate by picking up a shirt for the “The Human Trial” documentary as it brings world attention to finding a cure for diabetes. Visit: Thanks for caring.
