New at EXPO

This year the EXPO will debut the Grand Taste Area.  The Grand Tasting Area is a multilayered world class sampling of appealing Diabetes-friendly foods created and served by Novo Nordisk Diabetes Education Program Celebrity Chefs. Each chef will be paired with a Novo Nordisk Diabetes Educator delivering an educational message surrounding healthy eating and meal planning. Healthy eating does not have to be boring but vibrant, full of life and flavor! Another addition to the EXPO this year is a hands-on Oral Health and Diabetes Education Area presented by Delta Dental.
