BROOKLYN - A mobile tour dedicated to spreading awareness about diabetes visited Brooklyn today.

"The Diabetic You Patient Awareness Tour" made a stop at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. The visit featured diabetes-friendly cooking demos from celebrity chef and Brooklyn native Charles Mattocks. Mattocks, who's also diabetic, says he felt compelled to share his story and encourage others to learn more about diabetes.

People who attended the cooking demo got to take home recipe cards for diabetes-friendly meals.
