Legendary entertainer Debbie Allen is an american treasure, who’s still going strong with acting, producing TV shows, running her dance academy, and now she’s a Kennedy Center honoree.

She’s also living with pre-diabetes and has a family history of type 2 diabetes, a leading risk factor for chronic kidney disease, which is why she’s working to raise awareness.
