What We’re Reading: Free Vision Screenings at ADA Expo

Each year, the American Diabetes Association[1] hosts several Diabetes/Healthy 4 Life Expos. Its next one is on November 6 at the David L. Lawerence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The Expo provides free health screenings, as well as cooking demonstrations and product exhibitions. Leading diabetes experts will also be on hand with the latest information and research. Best of all, admission is free.

At the Expo, Divabetic[2] — an organization promoting fitness and health — will be hosting an outreach event at their pavilion. They will feature free vision screenings as well as free massages, fitness demonstrations, and an entertaining and educational live stage show called The View.

For more information about this week’s events and the calendar of upcoming Expos, you can visit the ADA’s Web site[3]. You can also learn more about Divabetic’s free pavilion on their event page[4].
