Raising awareness around the risk of diabetes in the black community is very personal for Joseph Simmons aka Rev. Run and his wife, Justine Simmons.
After discovering that both of their families have a history of type 2 diabetes, the pair decided to take action. So they partnered with leading diabetes care organization, Novo Nordisk and its Ask.Screen.Know national program to inform Americans about the importance of finding out about their risk levels and getting early screenings for type 2 diabetes.
The Run–D.M.C. member wants to encourage Americans through his various public platforms and promotional campaigns to visit the Ask.Screen.Know. websiteto take the Diabetes Risk Factor Assessment. He said he’s “happy” to advocate for awareness surrounding the chronic condition, especially as it pertains to the African-American community.
