Diabetes EXPO



What a terrific idea!.

A diabetes tradeshow.

The American Diabetes Association, Diabetes EXPO will be held in 18 venues across the United States. It is the largest exhibition dedicated to diabetics.

With the number of Americans who have diabetes and pre-diabetes, this sounds like a great way to reach out to that population.

Center For Disease Control, June 24, 2008: Number of People with Diabetes Increases to 24 Million. “Diabetes now affects nearly 24 million people in the United States, an increase of more than 3 million in approximately two years, according to new 2007 prevalence data estimates released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This means that nearly 8 percent of the U.S. population has diabetes.”

The ADA Diabetes EXPO contains highly interactive events that include professional speakers, access to health providers, a variety of ADA program/event information, exercise and cooking demonstrations and much more.

It’s one stop shopping for everything related to diabetes, healthy eating and active living.

  • Exhibitors provide how-to-product demonstrations, free samples and the latest products, services and information.
  • Medical professionals are present to answer questions
  • Exciting lectures are scheduled throughout the day
  • Cooking and exercise demonstrations
  • Free health screenings
  • Youth Zone – an interactive area for children

I’ve marked my calendar, as it is coming to Denver in March 2009. EXPO site features distinct and unique local flair. Here are highlights of the one coming to my area:

  • Free Screenings & Exercise Demos
  • Guest Celebrities
  • Interactive Educational Sessions & Heart Healthy Cooking Demos
  • Interactive Educational Sessions
  • El Mercadito Latino/Latin Marketplace
  • Diabetes Bookstore & Exhibits Featuring the Latest Products & Services
  • I’m already thinking about volunteering. How about you? There are lots of opportunities to volunteer, or sponsor an exhibit.

    Check out these venues for the summer and fall …
