Mr. Jonas Goes to Washington
Jonas has been logging time in Washington, D.C., this week, stumping for one of his most cherished causes: juvenile diabetes.
OK! Magazine reports that Nick, 16, met with President Barack Obama at the White House for a photo with diabetic children. Jonas—who revealed that he has Type 1 diabetes in 2007—also attended a meeting in the Capitol Hill office of Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) arranged by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Children’s Congress.
And on Wednesday, Jonas testified at a Senate hearing for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at the Senate Dirksen Building. During the hearing, Jonas stressed the need for increased federal funding for Type 1 diabetes research.
We have to say; Nick Jonas is nothing if not devoted.
