“Sugar” - Connecticut Multicultural Health Partnership

“Sugar”

The high incidence of diabetes among African Americans has been well documented and yet the need for further development of effective ways to promote prevention and successful treatment persists. One important effort to address this issue can be found in Hartford. The Hartbeat Theater Ensemble is launching a series of healthcare related conversations through dramatic performances. This effort begins with a production called “Sugar.” It explores the playwright/performers personal experience with diabetes as well as examines diabetes in the African American community.  Below is an article written in the American Diabetes Association’s news outlet, Diabetes: The Healthy Living Magazine about the show which has previously debuted in other venues.
