Learn how to be healthy, active and live well with diabetes
(BPT) - Whether you are at risk for, have been recently diagnosed with, or are living with diabetes, it is essential to make sure you have the information necessary to manage your disease. It can also be overwhelming caring for someone with diabetes. The American Diabetes Association strives to make it easier and the organization’s EXPOs are a great place to start.
EXPO is one way the American Diabetes Association helps fight diabetes on a community level by providing free access to cooking demonstrations, diabetes information and educational presentations. At EXPO, local community health organizations are brought together so that attendees may benefit from a variety of screenings such as blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol. The resources found at EXPO can help to Stop Diabetes (R) in its tracks.
There is a lot that goes into making EXPOs successful and one of those things is its volunteers. Roberta Pondexter has been volunteering at EXPO Chicago for the past three years. “I wanted to volunteer with an organization that hit close to home. My dad was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes six years ago. My family was initially scared and we wanted to learn more about this disease that affects so many,” says Pondexter.
