Boston Diabetes EXPO - Recap

by Alexander Golonka

The Diabetes1.org team recently took part in the annual American Diabetes Association Diabetes EXPO in Boston and had the chance to see the latest in diabetes care as well as meet many new and interesting people. The close to 5,000 attendees enjoyed health demonstrations, free food and plenty of diabetes information. If you missed the EXPO, click here for a short video to see some of the activities.

Take Action
Boston Diabetes EXPO
  • Join the Body1 community to win a free Wii.
  • The American Diabetes Association needs donations for research in the battle against diabetes.
  • If you missed the EXPO this year, check it out next year and take advantage of all the great resources, including the Diabetes1.org table.
  • At the Diabetes1 booth we demoed the new features on our site including the continuous blood glucose meter comparison. Everyone who came by had really good questions and we appreciate the feedback and continued interest in Diabetes1.org. We also announced at the EXPO our Nintendo Wii giveaway, allowing those who contribute to the website through the blogs, forums, or product reviews to be entered into a drawing.

    The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is committed to finding a cure for diabetes through research as well as helping people with diabetes live full and healthy lives. The services they provide are invaluable to people living with diabetes. For more information about the ADA and their services, visit them at: www.diabetes.org.

    Events like the Boston Diabetes EXPO bring together everyone who deals with diabetes from doctors to patients to medical device companies. As diabetes technology and research advances and new techniques, products, and treatments are tested and employed, the annual EXPO is important in bringing everything together in one place. The ADA holds the EXPO to educate the country about the seriousness of diabetes, especially when it is untreated or worse, undiagnosed. The Diabetes1 team strives to cover the EXPO and other events like it to keep you updated on the latest in diabetes health.

    We would like to thank everyone who attended the EXPO and stopped by our booth. The EXPO has given us the opportunity to increase the number of community members on our website. With a growing number of contributors and differing points of view, Diabetes1.org will continue to be a rich and diverse site providing insights, information and community for people living with diabetes.
