Diabetes, a growing epidemic that affects over 26 million Americans, is a serious health condition that if left untreated, can result in adverse health outcomes. According to the CDC, 7 million diabetics are undiagnosed. In addition to the health implications, diabetes is also an economic burden, currently estimated at a total cost of $218 billion, one of the costliest diseases in America.

Stephen Wallem is both a person living with non-preventable Type 1 diabetes and an actor portraying a character with diabetes on the Showtime television series Nurse Jackie. He has enthusiastically joined the diabetes campaign in hopes that his compelling personal story will reach a greater audience.

The PSAs are part of a larger initiative to involve national and local media in a dialogue that informs the public about diabetes.
