Collins chairs hearing on juvenile diabetes

From the Lewiston Sun Journal:

Singer Nick Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers, joins Cole Buchanan, 8, of Falmouth, Hannah Ryder, 11, of Cumberland and Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins after a Senate hearing on diabetes Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Jonas, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago, testified before Collins' committee, alongside actress Mary Tyler Moore and boxer "Sugar" Ray Leonard and Ryder. Buchanan and Ryder attended the hearing as members of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Collins has held similar hearings every two years since founding the Senate Diabetes Caucus 10 years ago to raise awareness for the disease.
