Podcast 70: Heavy on the Greens, Light on the Gravy | Rev Run & Justine Simmons

It is always a pleasure to connect with fellow diabetes advocates, Rev Run and Justine Simmons. They radiate positive energy and had me laughing with their ability to call each out when it comes to healthy lifestyle choices. There is no doubt, their passion to rewrite their family history with Type 2 diabetes is contagious and the Simmons kids are teaching them a thing or two.

Unless you have lived under a rock for the past 20 years, you should know Rev Run (Run DMC) and the series of shows he and his family have been a part of. Their ability to be real and inspiring is one of the many reasons I adore them. As mentioned in this episode, they are ambassadors for the Ask.Screen.Know campaign and do a phenomenal job of sharing their story.
