According to data from a 2011 study done by the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes; this represents 8.3% of the population. The American Diabetes Association’s mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
This is done through funding research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes, delivering services to hundreds of communities, they provide objective and credible information, and give a voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.
Notable celebrities who are known to have diabetes include pop sensation Nick Jonas, award-winning actress Halle Berry, singer for the band Poison, Bret Michaels, and comedians Delta Burke, and Drew Carey.
Social Hill works with a different charity every month to raise awareness in the celebrity community.
