US-based singer, songwriter and actor Nick Jonas has co-launched Beyond Type 1, an organization devoted to providing education and awareness for Type 1 diabetes. The sites’ goal is “to highlight the brilliance of those fighting this disease every day while always working toward ensuring a cure is on its way.”
Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2005, and now he’s working with Beyond Type 1 and hopes that using social media, sharing stories and creating lifestyle blogs on its website, Beyond Type 1 can create a supportive community for people of all ages with Type 1 diabetes.
