WESTPORT, Conn. Pop sensation Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers has agreed to an exclusive interview to discuss his four-year struggle with Type 1 diabetes. The interview is set to air on dLIfeTV Sunday, July 19 at 7 p.m. on CNBC.

By doing the interview, Jonas hopes to help raise awareness about diabetes, motivate others and ensure they know they are not alone.
"Nick Jonas is just 16 but he is a larger than life player in our culture and has a unique opportunity to share his story to benefit so many," said Howard Steinberg, founder and CEO of dLife.
