Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers to Address the National Press Club on August 24

WASHINGTON, July 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nick Jonas - singer, songwriter, actor and member of the Grammy-nominated band, Jonas Brothers - will speak at a National Press Club luncheon on August 24. Jonas will discuss his personal experiences living with and managing his juvenile diabetes and his efforts to inspire other youth dealing with diabetes to manage their disease.


Since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13, the pop super star who tests his blood sugar more than ten times a day, has made a personal commitment to raise awareness about juvenile diabetes. In June, he testified before Congress to call for support of diabetes research funding. He wrote the song "A Little Bit Longer" to inspire those with diabetes to live their lives to the fullest. Together with his brothers Kevin and Joe, Nick founded the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation to support programs that motivate children to face adversity and one of their causes is to raise money and awareness for various diabetes programs.

As a diabetes ambassador with Bayer Diabetes Care, Jonas has launched a national awareness campaign to provide young people and their families with motivation and support to simplify life with the disease. "Nick's Simple Wins" website ( helps inspire young people with diabetes to achieve small, everyday victories while managing their disease. Nick and Bayer created dog tags as a symbol of support for people with diabetes, increase awareness about the disease and raise money for his foundation.
