Learn How to be Healthy, Active and Live Well with Diabetes

By American Diabetes Association


Navigating the world of diabetes care can be overwhelming, whether you are at risk for, have been recently diagnosed or are living with diabetes. Where do you turn to for help?

You can find answers to many of your questions at the American Diabetes Association EXPO, a FREE one-day diabetes-focused health event in more than a dozen metropolitan cities that brings health care professionals, experts, product exhibitors and volunteers together under one roof.

Each EXPO has different features, yet all touch on living well with diabetes or prediabetes. There you can take advantage of free health screenings provided by local health care organizations such as blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol; talk with experts in a one-on-one setting; attend cooking demonstrations; and visit product exhibits and presentations on diabetes prevention and management. And don’t forget to bring your children and participate in our Family Fun/Healthy Kids area with information and activities geared toward youth with diabetes and their families!

Diabetes affects nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States, with an additional 79 million having prediabetes. EXPO is one way the Association helps those affected learn how to live well, be active and change the future of diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association’s EXPO began in 1995 in Phoenix, Ariz., and has grown to 13 cities around the country. In 2013, EXPO provided free diabetes information and support to nearly 65,000 people.
