Children’s Book Proceeds to Fund UCSF Diabetes Research

A dedicated Diabetes Center supporter has captured the tale told by her grandmother well over a half century ago in a new children’s book entitled, Billy and Skipper. This delightful story is filled with old-fashioned values – love of family, adventure, problem solving and forgiveness – all to benefit one of the Diabetes Center’s research pioneers, Michael German, MD.

Priced at $10 per book, all proceeds will benefit the German lab that is focused on pancreatic development and beta cell regeneration.  To secure your copy, make checks payable to the UCSF Foundation,Fund #B3056.  Checks should be mailed to UCSF, PO Box 45339, San Francisco, CA 94145-0339.

Special thanks to Beverly for her skill in storytelling and for her ongoing passion for curing type 1 diabetes!
