ADW Diabetes Interviews American Idol Alumni Elliott Yamin to Help Spread Diabetes Awareness.
ADW Diabetes recently had the opportunity to talk to American Idol alumni and recording artist Elliott Yamin. Yamin is in preparing for the release of his third studio album titled “Let’s Get To What’s Real” on April 10th and a tour that will begin shortly afterwards.
Yamin was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of sixteen and while going through the American Idol process was open and honest about his diabetes with the world. A fan-favorite, whose soulful voice earned him a third place finish, has used his fame to bring diabetes awareness to the fore-front. He is not shy about talking about his diabetes, and he hopes that his honesty can positively impact anyone else that is or has struggled with their diabetes management.
“Diabetes has changed the course of my life for the better,” says Elliott Yamin. “I feel very fortunate to be in the position that I am in to be able to raise awareness, if nothing else, about diabetes and our plight. If I can help just one other person with diabetes that may be struggling by sharing my story than it is worth it. I embrace that.”
“We admire Elliott for sharing his story and his determination to not allow diabetes to slow him down while pursuing his dreams of making music,” said Chris Maguire, Vice President and Co-Founder of ADW Diabetes. “His dedication to help others with diabetes is worthy of a standing ovation.”
ADW Diabetes has published Elliott Yamin’s diabetes interview and his story of living with diabetes as a busy recording artist and his commitment to help others who have diabetes.
