Given the disruption of in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Delaware Diabetes Coalition is putting their Annual Diabetes Wellness Expo online during National Diabetes Month – November 2020. Virtual Education Sessions will be held Thursday, Nov. 12 and Thursday, Nov. 19 at 10:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day. These sessions are free for the public to watch live and/or recorded on their own time.
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. Presented by health leaders in our community, these virtual education sessions will well-equip attendees to better manage their diabetes.
Sessions will include the importance of eye screenings, taking charge of advance directives, the role of diabetes alert dogs and dining with diabetes, plus a few more.
All sessions will be live on Zoom and attendees must pre-register for the sessions they wish to watch live or to receive the recording. Register online at https://bit.ly/DDCOnline.
A complete agenda, speaker biographies, and sponsor information can be found online at www.dediabetescoalition.org under the Wellness Expo menu.
