Therapeutics Education Collaboration - Tom Hanks and Type 2 Diabetes



Type of Spiritual Experience


Quote from the TEC site

"An evidence based discussion I would like to have with Mr. Hanks
Tom Hanks surprised many of his fans by announcing in October 2013, on national TV, that he had been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. Unfortunately, type-2 diabetes is sometimes described by the media and health professionals as a silent killer or a ticking time bomb which can lead to inappropriate fear and DIS-EASE. Using Mr. Hanks as a case study along with video clips from many of his great movies, I use the best available evidence to explain to him the real risks associated with this condition along with the benefits and harms of treatment. The results will VERY MUCH surprise you."
