S. Epatha Merkerson is an Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actress who starred for many years as Lt. Van Buren on “Law & Order” ( a show that if I see two seconds of I have to watch the entire episode) and is currently featured on “Chicago Med” (which often films in my neighborhood, requiring me to move my vehicle — one of these days my little car will make it on screen and become legendary).   She called in to talk about her work with “America’s Diabetes Challenge.
