WGBH Contributor Sue O'Connell chats with Judith Vecchione, the Executive Producer of Blood Sugar Rising, a documentary following the diabetes epidemic in the U.S. Diabetes and pre-diabetes affect over 100 million people in the US, costing more than $325 billion each year. Blood Sugar Rising puts human faces to these statistics, exploring the history and science of the illness through portraits of Americans whose stories shape the film.
