Halle Berry Campaigns to End Diabetes
Halle Berry becomes national ambassador for Diabetes Aware campaign
Halle Berry was catapulted into success and stardom for her role in "Monster’s Ball," but the actress remains ever so humble and involved with several charitable causes such as the Diabetes Aware campaign, a public service announcement meant to inform individuals about the rise of diabetes. The campaign was put forth by the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a non-profit charity that helps further various philanthropic causes, and Novo Nordisk, a pharmaceutical company. Berry became the campaign’s first national ambassador to speak out against an illness that has been affecting her for many years. The actress was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 1989 and has been using her platform to speak out against the illness and promote awareness about it.
