Dr. Phil McGraw is best known as the host of the top-rated daytime talk show, “Dr. Phil.” He is also an accomplished author, having written eight New York Times No. 1 bestsellers and is frequently called upon for his expert opinion on current events by major national and international news outlets.
Dr. Phil has lived with type 2 diabetes for more than 25 years. He has recently partnered with AstraZeneca for the “ON IT Movement,” an awareness campaign that seeks to empower adults living with type 2 diabetes to take an active role in managing the condition to get on – and stay on – a healthy path. The campaign leverages Dr. Phil’s personal experience living with type 2 diabetes and his professional experience as a former practicing clinical psychologist to engage, motivate and inspire people to commit to take action and more effectively manage their type 2 diabetes. In addition, the ON IT Movement seeks to elevate the national conversation around type 2 diabetes to encourage appropriate action that will better support people living with the condition.
