The RHS is pleased to welcome back John Lorinc – well known Toronto journalist, editor, historian and author. His presentation this month will feature the historic discovery of Insulin in 1921, one of the most mythologized and consequential stories of Canadian medical science.

John Lorinc is a Toronto journalist and editor. He writes about urban affairs, business, clean tech and local history for a range of publications, including Spacing, the Globe and Mail, and Canada’s History Magazine. He is also the senior editor with Defining Moments Canada, which featured extensive writing about Insulin at 100: https://definingmomentscanada.ca/insulin100/.
