“The Diabetic You RV Tour,” designed to raise awareness about the management and treatment of diabetes, has been extended to include a stop in Atlanta later this month.

According to a press release, celebrity chef Charles Mattocks, Shire Regenerative Medicine and Heal2gether are hosting the one-month RV Tour. The American Diabetes Association said that nearly 26 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and as many as one in three adult Americans could have diabetes by 2050.

Mattocks, author of Eat Cheap but Eat Well, set off on a mission to help stop the ravages of the deadly disease after he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and is now an avid advocate for diabetics. Mattocks began creating ‘The Diabetic You,’ a documentary and movement focused on educating and inspiring people around the world as a personal mission to help educate the public about living healthier lives — starting with healthy eating.

“The Diabetic You” Mobile RV Tour will include a day-long event in each city with a slate of interactive activities related to the management and treatment of diabetic complications, including cooking demonstrations by Mattocks. Leading diabetic experts will also be onsite to answer questions about potential warning signs for common problems such as high blood pressure, stroke, retinopathy and neuropathy. Additionally, “The Diabetic You” Mobile RV Tour will be offering visitors a free year-long subscription to Diabetic Living, one of the largest publications in diabetes health.

“The Diabetic You” Mobile Tour schedule is as follows:

• Feb. 23 – Tucson, AZ
