St. Giuseppe Moscati was an Italian doctor, and a brilliant scientific researcher, whose work laid the groundwork for the discovery of insulin in treating diabetes. He was a university professor noted both for his pioneering work in biochemistry and for his piety. He saw the poor for free and often paid for the medicines. He is known as the “doctor of the poor” and was canonized by the Catholic Church in 1987, his feast day is November 16. His love and care for the suffering poor has been an inspiration and so the clinic was named in his honor and as a reminder of what medicine should aspire to be.
