When Tony award-winning actor and S.T.A.N.D advocate Ben Vereen was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2007, it was his mission to help raise awareness to this growing disease. S.T.A.N.D. (Start Taking Action Now about Diabetes) is a non-profit advocacy group that started a movement to change the dialogue about diabetes.

Listen as Ben describes the symptoms he experienced before his diagnosis and how his involvement with S.T.A.N.D. reminds people they aren’t suffering but living with diabetes, and how diabetes is not a challenge but an opportunity to educate others and live for a greater life.
