A Touch of Sugar

October 6, 2019 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

More than 30 million Americans have diabetes – about 1 in 10 people. “A Touch of Sugar” dives into the diabetes healthcare crisis that affects every community in the United States, told through the voices of people united in their struggle with this chronic disease. Acclaimed actress and producer Viola Davis, the first African-American to earn the Triple Crown of Acting, lends her voice as the film’s narrator to share, for the first time, how type 2 diabetes has touched her life, and to powerfully speak for the millions of Americans affected by this disease. Created in collaboration with Merck, and directed by Ani Simon-Kennedy, “A Touch of Sugar” disrupts 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, re-establish type 2 diabetes as an urgent public health issue. As Shenekqual prepares for her wedding, Stewart heads to Capitol Hill, Susie arms herself with the information she needs and Niurka receives support from her family, “A Touch of Sugar” sheds light on how we can confront this epidemic – one patient and one community at a time.
