Diabetes Awareness Has a New Face: The Rock

As the new national ambassador for the Diabetes Aware campaign, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says,

"Get outside. Play a game. Do something active together. We can make a difference in our own families through exercise, eating right, and teaching healthy behaviors to our children."

Past ambassadors include Halle Berry, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Dustin Hoffman, so hopefully The Rock can continue to raise awareness about reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by living a healthy lifestyle. Diabetes Aware helps educate folks on type 1 diabetes as well.

We should be seeing Diabetes Aware public service announcements starring The Rock soon, but until then, if you want to see the most recent PSA starring Kevin Kline and Jon Lovitz, then

Celebrity spokespeople help bring attention to diseases like diabetes. In addition to promoting healthy eating and physical activity, we need to promote good oral health care. There is a significant body of evidence linking gum disease and diabetes. In my practice I've seen many patients who, once treated for gum disease, were better able to control their diabetes.
