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.  With 40+ exhibitors and health screeners, plus an educationally packed program presented by health leaders in our community, attendees will be well-equipped to better manage their diabetes.

Governor Bethany Hall Long will also present on Diabetes in Delaware and a 20th Anniversary celebration will take place during lunch.
