Did you know that nearly 26 million children and adults in the US have diabetes? Another 79 million have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 Diabetes.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 adults will have diabetes by 2050.

This expo has free health screenings. They are many different kinds. There are speakers, lots of vendors, ways to make healthy eating choices and ways to get active. This is a great conference. I have walked through it when I attend the Breast Cancer Awareness Conference in the same bldg. It is always the same weekend.
