Anthony Anderson from the hit ABC show black-ishis known for the humor and life he brings to the show. But he’s also living with Type 2 Diabetes, a disease that many African-Americans are affected by.
“It’s no secret that I’m a type 2 diabetic. And so we’re dealing with that on the show,” explained Anderson. His character Dre is diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in an episode airing on December 12, 2017. “It’s the first of its kind of integration that my show and ABC is doing with Novo Nordisk.”
Anderson and Novo Nordisk have partnered together for a campaign called Get Real About Diabetes.
