The article discusses the efforts undertaken by Andy Mandell and his brother, founders of the Defeat Diabetes Association to raise awareness about diabetes. Some of the activities undertaken by Mandell to promote the organization include walking the perimeter of the U.S. to spread the word, which took around 8 years, from 2000 to 2008. He also promotes diabetes awareness targeted towards people on the cusp of becoming diabetic.
