- Pin the Pancreas on the Piggy, a goofy wall game that spoofs “Pin the Tail on the Donkey.”
Brings all types of people with diabetes and their family and friends together. The intent is to learn about the pancreas, and understand that pigs have a place in diabetes history. Pigs provided insulin for people in 1920s through 1970s, and now, they may help with research towards a cure with their insulin-producing beta cells.
