The Expo brings together healthcare providers, businesses, diabetes-related organizations, and others to promote diabetes self-management and a healthier lifestyle for people with diabetes.

Highlights of the day will include free flu shots provided by DE Division of Public Health – Southern Health Services; a keynote presentation from Dr. Nira Madisi, Endocrinologist at Bayhealth Medical Group; raffle giveaways; and for the first time ever – a panel where patients will discuss how they manage their diabetes with innovative and evolving advancements in technology and design. Lt. Governor Bethany Hall Long will also present during lunch on Diabetes in Delaware.

A complete agenda, speaker biographies, and exhibitor lineup can be found online at www.dediabetescoalition.org under the Wellness Expo menu.
