Two good looking guys working together for a good cause? Sign us up! Season two Top Chef cheftestant Sam Talbot is teaming up with Nick Jonas to help raise awareness about the misconceptions of diabetes. Both Sam and Nick have type 1 diabetes and are now working with Beyond Type 1, a non-profit organization that raises diabetes awareness and aims to eliminate stigmas.
Sam, 37, was diagnosed with diabetes at age 12. "Living with type 1 practically my whole life, I have always wanted to erase the black cloud and the stigma that goes along with the word ‘diabetes,'” he told People. “It is a way of life for me, not a hindrance but a lens through which I see the world and it’s important to not only educate but really celebrate the people affected.”
