Both Rev Run and Vanessa Simmons felt it was important to spread the message of knowing your diabetes risk for both men and women, especially women planning to get pregnant.
Note: I was invited as media to interview. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
Did you know that some women who are diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy already had type 2 diabetes before the baby was conceived. If left untreated, diabetes can affect a mother’s whole body, including her unborn baby, and can lead to a host of complications.
That is why Rev Run and Vanessa Simmons, are spreading awareness about the Ask.Screen.Know. campaign and website.

Rev Run is passionate that more people get to know their diabetes risk because he is at-risk, and has since made health a priority for his entire family. Because of his continued involvement in Ask.Screen.Know., his daughter Vanessa learned how important it is to be screened for diabetes. Vanessa is encouraging women thinking of having a baby to take the Diabetes Risk Factor Assessment and learn their risk factors of type 2 diabetes before becoming pregnant at www.AskScreenKnow.com
