On April 4, 2023, at 4pm ET, the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), the American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD), and the All of Us Research Program will present a special panel discussion and Q&A about the documentary The Human Trial, a film that explores promising new research around type 1 diabetes (T1D). Panelists include Director, Lisa Hepner and experts in the Diabetes and cure research space.
The Human Trial introduces audiences to a radical stem cell treatment for diabetes, a disease that, shockingly, kills more than five million people each year. Peeling back the headlines to show the sweat, passion and sacrifice poured into every medical breakthrough, the film interweaves the stories of the patients - who have borne the physical and financial burdens of type 1 diabetes - with the researchers who epitomize the struggle of innovating cures. Director Lisa Hepner - whose own T1D fuels her search for a cure - becomes the bridge between these two worlds.
