One day, entertainer Ben Vereen showed up at the office of Dr. Michael Bush, a leading diabetes expert and a medical professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

After a few months of treatment, the two were on the road together, spreading the word about diabetes awareness.

They're working together on the outreach program, "Take the Stage for Diabetes Awareness."
