Hi, and thank you for joining us at EmpowHer where together we guide women to better health all over the world. Did you know that 7 out of 10 US adults, age 65 and older, have diabetes or pre-diabetes, and less than ten percent of older adults in Medicare are taking advantage of the free diabetes screening benefits available to them? It’s just amazing, isn’t it?
Well, on the other end of the definition for amazing, Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis is with us right now talking about her husband, actor Louis Zorich, and Louis was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
We are going to talk to both of them. Louis, if you don’t know, he played one of my favorite characters of all time, the Greek restaurateur Pete in the Muppets Take Manhattan, an instant classic. So Olympia, welcome to EmpowHer.
Well, thank you. Thank you very much, and thank you so much for your interest for this campaign.
