(BPRW) Thrivin’ in Color Podcast Observes Diabetes Awareness Month

Episode 25 features a conversation with Leon Rock, CEO and Co-Founder of the African American Diabetes Association

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL – It’s National Diabetes Month!  According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year. Though there are many people living with diabetes, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health Africans Americans are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes compared to their white counterparts. In a dedicated effort to raise awareness during Diabetes Awareness Month, the Thrivin’ in Color Podcast takes center stage, featuring a compelling episode with Leon Rock, CEO and Co-Founder of the African American Diabetes Association.

In this episode, Mr. Rock and podcast host Camry Brown engage in an insightful conversation about  the lack of access to healthcare within Black and Brown communities and the difficulties this creates when it comes to managing diabetes. A diabetes patient and advocate,  Mr. Rock also provides some crucial information on diabetes management to help those with the  disease to continue leading healthy lives. “This was a really eye-opening conversation,” said Camry. “Knowledge is power, it’s imperative for our community to know about diabetes. I encourage everyone to listen to this episode and ring the bell for diabetes awareness.”

The African American Diabetes Association (AADA) is a national tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit organization that seeks to educate African Americans and the general public about diabetes. The AADA is passionate, serious, and committed to diabetes prevention and educational programs that work to end diabetes and other health disparities.
