[*]  WATCH: A TOUCH OF SUGAR                                                           

#############################################

https://tcoyd.org/2019/09/watch-the-film-a-touch-of-sugar/

 

You might know Viola Davis from one of her iconic films, or her impressive producing repertoire.

One thing you might not know about the A list celeb is that she was diagnosed with prediabetes.

In fact, roughly one third of American adults have prediabetes and might not even know it.

 

Prediabetes reflects an elevated blood sugar level that is still below the level of type 2 diabetes,

but it can increase your diabetes risk by 50%. Instead of backing down, Davis decided to become an

advocate for those with prediabetes and narrated the diabetes-focused documentary A Touch of Sugar.

We caught up with Davis about her relationship to diabetes, her diagnosis and what she's learned

through her advocacy.

 

More than 30 million Americans have diabetes – that’s about 1 in 10 adults – and 90 to 95% of

them have type 2 diabetes. A Touch of Sugar dives into the diabetes healthcare epidemic that

affects every community in the United States, told through the voices of people united in their

struggle with this chronic disease. Diabetes management doesn’t occur in isolation. These stories

bring to life the emotional challenges, social factors and public perceptions that have a

significant impact but go unnoticed far too often.

 

Created in collaboration with Merck, directed by Ani Simon-Kennedy and narrated by acclaimed

actress and producer Viola Davis, the film attests to the resiliency of the human spirit and

challenges the national perception of life with type 2 diabetes. Interviews with patients and

their loved ones, as well as doctors, advocates and thought leaders in the space, explore the

larger diabetes ecosystem at work and help to reinforce type 2 diabetes as an urgent public

health issue that cannot be ignored, especially among underserved populations.

WELCOME TO WESTSIDE BLUES & JAZZ

Live Blues & Jazz every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Paul Vincent Perez and Cindi Jackson ( niece of Arizona Saxophonist Lou Garno ) created WestSide Blues & Jazz through necessity ( Ok, also maybe because they just wanted to ).

The West Valley was way over due for a Blues & Jazz Night Club that offers Live Blues & Jazz every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday featuring the best Bands in the State.

When asked what he thought was the key to a successful Night Club in the West Valley , Paul said “ 3 Criteria are needed, Awesome musicians, Great Service and a Comfortable atmosphere and WestSide Blues will have all of that - plus.

WestSide Blues & Jazz offers a cozy, bricked wall speakeasy decor with very comfortable casual seating. There is not a bad seat in the House. (Except maybe the one behind the pole ??.)

We have a top professional sound and lighting system , a 35’ granite bar with comfy swivel stools. We will offer a large menu of custom Craft cocktails along with your favorite liquors and beers.
