Bayer Diabetes Care Partners With Nick Jonas As A Diabetes Ambassador

Since August 6, 2008, Bayer Diabetes Care has partnered with Nick Jonas as a diabetes ambassador to promote the idea for young people to manage their diabetes, as Nick was diagnosed with diabetes when he was 13.

Nick testified in the U.S. Senate to promote more research funding for diabetes.

Who is Nick Jonas? Well if you're under 21 you probably already know the answer to that question. For those of us who are slightly out of touch with the pop music scene, Nick Jonas is the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers band, top singing and songwriting sensations who are ruling the charts right now.

Nick also has type 1 diabetes, which puts him in the unique position to be a spokesperson and role model for kids and teens with type 1.

According to a press release, Bayer Diabetes Care has asked Nick to become a diabetes ambassador, providing "young people and their families with the motivation and support they need to help simplify life with diabetes."
