-He may be too young to become President, but that isn’t stopping Nick Jonas from heading to Capitol Hill. According to the Washington Examiner, Nick is coming to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to talk about juvenile diabetes, an affliction he was diagnosed with at age 13.
Jonas, who is now 16, will testify before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee on June 24 to ask for more federal funding for diabetes research “and to remind Congress about the urgent need for a cure for a disease he lives with every day,” a senate aide said.
Fellow diabetes sufferers Mary Tyler Moore and Sugar Ray Leonard are also set to testify at the hearing, which will be held in the Dirksen Building.
