*Angie Stone has teamed up with Eli Lilly and Company to launch the national Fearless African-Americans Connected and Empowered (F.A.C.E.) Diabetes campaign to encourage blacks with diabetes to learn how to better manage their disease.
“When I was first diagnosed with diabetes eight years ago, I was in total denial about my disease and its impact on my life. I didn’t understand the importance of following my doctor’s treatment program and making lifestyle changes to better manage my diet and my weight,” said Stone. “But through trial and error and working with my healthcare team, my diabetes is finally under control. I’ve signed on as the national spokesperson for the F.A.C.E. Diabetes campaign because I want to be an example and encourage our community to get active and fearlessly face diabetes.”
